Qualified researchers can request access to data stored in FITBIR. To gain access to shared data, an investigator must obtain data access privileges.
In order to obtain Privileges you must do the following:
Once completed, the request package is then sent for approval to the Data Access and Quality Committee (DAQ) established to oversee access to the FITBIR shared data. When the investigator's request is approved, the investigator is notified by e-mail and explained the conditions under which the approval is granted.
Approvals for access to FITBIR and its tools are granted for one year. In order to apply for account renewal to submit data, users are required to update and submit the data submission request and biographical sketch. Users that would like to renew access to the query tool are required to update and submit the data access agreement and biographical sketch. If the investigator publishes any new results based on analysis using FITBIR data and tools, he/she is required to acknowledge both the original author/submitter of the data and FITBIR. Investigators who access data are also strongly encouraged to collaborate on data analysis and publications with the PIs who collected the data.
