One of Databrary's distinguishing features is that it provides a proven framework for sharing sensitive and identifiable data within a trusted network of authorized researchers.
To achieve this, access to restricted materials on Databrary requires institutional authorization via the formal Databrary Access Agreement and its three annexes. Annex I is a Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. Annex II can be used to add additional investigators to Databrary from an institution AFTER the initial full agreement has been completed by an investigator and the institution's Authorized Organizational Representative. Annex III is the Databrary Access Guide. It describes some of the core Databrary policies and practices that are important for institutions and researchers to understand and abide by.
