Data requests

The Centre for Trials Research aims to make its research data available wherever possible, subject to regulatory approvals, any terms and conditions placed upon us from external providers, patient confidentiality and all laws concerning the protection of personal information. Data is generally freely available, but recipients are expected to acknowledge the original creators in any public use of the data or in publishing research results based wholly or in part upon the data – anyone requesting access to data will be asked to agree to the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license. We may ask the requestor to cover reasonable cost for preparing and providing the data (for example physical storage and postage, where dataset size makes it impractical to provide data by electronic means).

Requests for access to the Centre’s data should be e-mailed to opendata@cardiff.ac.uk for assessment, providing sufficient detail to uniquely identify the dataset sought and appropriate contact details for the requestor.
