Will I be able to access any output outside of the VDE?

To get files out of the VDE and onto a personal computer, we must complete a process called a disclosure review to ensure all the data remains secure. First, you must complete the clearance memo that is provided in your VDE space. This provides additional context for the staff member that will complete your disclosure review. Please send the completed memo to nahdap-vde-support@umich.edu, noting the names and locations of files that you would like sent to you. Because this process sometimes requires revisions to your file, the timeline can vary, but we generally tell researchers to allow at least 10 days. Please be sure to submit such a request with enough time before a deadline, and remember that any attempt to transfer information out the VDE that circumvents this process is considered a breach of your data use agreement.

Please remember when presenting or publishing on the data that you are required by the RUF's Terms of Use to protect the identity of all research subjects and the confidentiality of the information that they provided from deductive disclosure.
