TEDS Current Data Requests

This web site provides details of current collaborative research projects involving analysis of TEDS data. Such projects are recorded and approved by means of the TEDS data request system, according to our data access policy.

Data request projects fall into two very broad categories. Firstly, there are individual researcher projects. These are led by an individual researcher, or a small group, based in a localised university research department. These data requests are time-limited (the current limit is one year) and the usual outcome, if successful, is publication in an academic journal. Occasionally, a data request may have another outcome such as an unpublished thesis or a grant application.

Secondly, there are international genetic consortia that TEDS has joined. These typically involve several research groups from a range of universities in different countries. Their purpose is genetic research, often involving genotypic analysis of combined large samples or comparisons between comparable independent samples by meta-analysis. These data requests are generally longer-term projects without a one-year time limit and the output may be a series of papers rather than a single publication.

Hence, this web site displays details of TEDS projects that can be grouped as follows: (1) genetic consortia; (2) current researcher projects; (3) completed researcher projects that are awaiting publication. The latter category is included here because their results cannot yet be seen on our publications page.

Data requests not shown here include (a) projects that have ended without success or without the intention of publication, and (b) projects whose results are now published. The latter may be viewed by means of our publications list and by means of our searchable publications site.

The number of projects currently logged in each category is summarised below:
