Is it necessary to submit my data related to my thesis to supervisor? I don't want to submit my data as there is a high chance that it will be used to publish paper with other student name who is much closer to my supervisor. This has happened in past in my department and hints of same repeatition is dropped with this research also. What are my intellectual rights in this scenario?

Edit#1: My problem is different from the question "How to deal with supervisor who required me to share all my work with him?" as there paper was already published with his name alongwith his supervisor as co-author. In my case paper is not yet published. So there is a chance that it can be published in other student's name. Once I let go all my data models etc. what is left with me??

    Hiding your data from anyone isn't a good look. – Azor Ahai May 6 '19 at 22:30

    I might well suggest that no data = no degree awarded. Two wrongs don't make a right. If anything, broadly share your data so that it is clear if it is being used without attribution. – Jon Custer May 6 '19 at 22:39
  • I have already shown all the models, results and other related data to my supervisor. That is not the problem. The problem is that he wants it in soft copy form. All of it. Now after getting all the data he can use it to publish paper with other student name. This type of incident has occured in past when a fellow student after making minor corrections in body of paper has got the oppurtunity to present it in the conference. The student who worked on the topic got his name as third author. The student didnt even knew that the paper is going to be published. What can be done then??? – Vinay kumar May 7 '19 at 4:02
  • Thanks @Anyon and Solar Mike but my case is slightly different as my paper is yet not published and there is a chance that it can be wrongfully published with other student name on it. – Vinay kumar May 7 '19 at 7:09
