Restricted Data

Depositing Sensitive Data

Per the Data Deposit Policy, the Emory Dataverse does not accept deposits of any data considered to be Internal, Confidential, or Restricted according to the Data Classification Definitions in Emory’s Disk Encryption Policy.

If you have data that need an embargo period, it is possible to restrict access to either individual files or all files within a dataset. To restrict data files associated with your study, please contact us to discuss your options.

Finding and Accessing Restricted Data

Datasets that have restricted access to files will bear a red lock icon beside the file name.

If the author of a dataset has permitted users to request access, then you may use the Dataverse's "Contact Email" function to send a message to the author. Please note that you must be logged into the Emory Dataverse to use this feature. The dataset author will make the final determination whether to grant access to their data files.
