Within the system you can choose between two types of requests: a general data request or a request for data quality control. The latter is for internal YOUth Domain Responsibles only.
After approval of a data request, but prior to obtaining access to data and materials in our repository, we require researchers to first preregister their approved data request in the YOUth Registry on the Open Science Framework. Amendments to approved data requests must also be registered as updates to the preregistration in the YOUth Registry, where all versions (including prior versions) will remain publicly visible.
Please read the following documents before submitting a data request:
- YOUth Data Access Protocol (PDF)
- Interactive YOUth prospectus or prospectus as Excel document (an overview of all available data)
- Preview of the online data request form
- Instructions preregistration YOUth Registry
For questions, you can contact the YOUth Project Manager.
Disclaimer: Please note that our online data request system has been launched recently and may therefore contain unforeseen issues. It would be of great help to us when you report any issues you may encounter to the YOUth Project Manager. Also note that the data request form is tailored towards projects that include testing of hypotheses using (inferential) statistics; if this does not apply to your project, please indicate ‘N/A’ in the fields that pertain to the statistical analyses. In the next update of this system, a form tailored towards projects not testing hypotheses using statistics will also be available.
Information about data requests for projects that are not yet funded
Researchers who wish to use YOUth data in a project that has not yet been funded and intend to mention the use of YOUth data in a grant proposal first need to contact the YOUth project manager. The proposed project will be evanualated by the YOUth Management Team. If approved, the YOUth Management Team will sign a Statement of Intent to share YOUth data.
Below you can find the YOUth template for the Statement of Intent in English and in Dutch:
Are you presenting your research with YOUth-data at a conference, feel free to use the YOUth-template. There is a landscape-template and a portrait-template available.
