The protection of Indigenous knowledge is very important and this is covered in Article Six. The reality however is that the issues covered by the article are so broad that anyone wishing to keep their data private can do so. This was an uneasy compromise but the general thrust to keep data open is clear.

The Beijing Declaration on Research Data<https://zenodo.org/record/3552330#.Xs-tt9rQhEY> has a prescription for closed research data in article 6, although I see that the final version removed the recommendation for data management plans include an embargo expiration date.

Dear Kind Colleagues,

as most people on this listerserver and in agencies promote the news that we are all moving towards Open Access, and that things get better that way and more transparent, or even more
I would like to share with you below a recent article by the esteemed American Association of
University Professors (AAUP), titled

The Big Secret in the Academy Is That Most Research Is Secret: The dangerous rift between open and classified research, Spring 2020
By Kate Brown

It deals with Chernobyl as a case study but has many wider implications and statements within on data access issues and the sciences, globally.

It mirrors what I know and see, and what I have expressed last years.

It also reminds of such type of works (see facts and details within, specifically data and digital society issues) like:

The best way to proceed here, in a good way, is to fully acknowledge the status quo,
and then improve on it dramatically for betterment.
I lack those acknowledgements though and actions even, or a valid vision, beyond just arbitrary piecemeal with many loop holes and ineffciencies.

That's my view.

Thanks, please keep me posted on this topic.
Very best regards
