Abstract: In the first part of this talk, Melanie Röthlisberger (Open Science Services, University of Zurich) gives a brief overview over different anonymization tools and focuses on one tool in more detail: QualiAnon is an anonymization tool for qualitative textual data. The tool was developed by Qualiservice in cooperation with Pangaea to enable researchers to anonymize or pseudonymize their research data semi-automatically in a structured way. In the second part of the talk, Matthias Templ, developer of sdcMicro, will give insights into his R-package that can be used to anonymize structured quantitative data on individual units, such as people, households, or organizations. Most functionalities of the package are also available via an interactive shiny-based graphical user interface.
