  • Abstract

    These data collection and analysis protocols and the attribute list are part of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation funded project, "The Researcher Passport: Improving Data Access and Confidentiality Protection." The research questions concern the accessibility of data that require special, restricted access conditions, and the possibility of increasing access and utility of these data through a shared digital access credential. The project employed mixed methods, and collected data repository documentation related to data access and re-use policies and procedures, as well as interviews with data repository staff about organizational policies and processes to authorize access to restricted data. The interview protocol relates to nine interviews conducted with repository staff, and the codeset relates to these nine interviews, notes from a stakeholder meeting, and the 355 pieces of documentation provided by 23 data repositories. This study includes no data at this time. Additional data and documentation will be made available at a later date. When these materials are available, users will be able to download the updated versions of the study.
  • Methods

    Response Rates: Interview requests were made to all 23 data repositories. Of these, interviews with 9 repository staff members were conducted.
