Data Access Policy
Discuss Data offers a three-tier access policy
Discuss Data offers a three-tier access policy. Depending on the sensitivity and requirements of the Data Collection, Data Owners can choose between a) open access, b) restricted access or c) no access (metadata only).
a) "Open access" Data Collections will be accessible in full for everyone, including users outside of Discuss Data. This is the recommended method of publication for Data Collections. The Documentation of Data Collection and the Data files will be automatically written into the DARIAH Repository for digital long-term archiving.
b) "Restricted access" Data Collections will be accessible in full only for a subset of Discuss Data Users of your choosing. While the Documentation of Data Collection and the Metadata will be publicly available, access to Data Files has to be individually requested and confirmed by the Data Owner or Administrator of the Data Collection. This type of access is recommended for Data Collections that contain sensitive information or for which the analysis has not yet been published.
c) "Metadata only" offers to upload the Metadata and the Documentation of Data Collection without the Data files themselves. This access model is recommended for Data Collections which cannot be shared or stored online, for example if they contain sensitive information. Interested Users can contact the Data Owner via Discuss Data to request access to the Data Files.
