Health sciences

Some repositories in this section are suitable for datasets requiring restricted data access, which may be required for the preservation of study participant anonymity in clinical datasets. We suggest contacting repositories directly to determine those offering the data access controls which are best suited to your specific requirements. Authors should also consider whether they have access to a national, funder or project-specific repository that can facilitate data access controls, and which could therefore be suitable for hosting sensitive health science data.
