As the concept of data sharing matures across the clinical research community, organizational data sharing processes continue to evolve. To that end, the team at Project Data Sphere stands ready to work with your organization to streamline the delivery of data sets to the Project Data Sphere® cancer research platform. Critical steps along the way include:

  • Legal review of the Project Data Sphere Data Sharing Agreement. Authorized users can download the template agreement here, or a copy of the agreement can be shared via email. The Project Data Share Data Sharing Agreement has been developed collaboratively with leading industry and academic research organizations, and all data available within the platform has been shared based upon the same Data Sharing Agreement.
  • Identifying who within your organization is responsible for agreeing to share data to the Project Data Sphere cancer research platform.
  • Applying to become a registered user of the Project Data Sphere cancer research platform
  • Preparing data for sharing. This can include identifying the required supporting documents (protocol, case report form and data dictionary), determining which specific data (which data tables and/or which treatment arms) will be shared, and then de-identifying and/or anonymizing the data in accordance with your organization’s policies.
  • Completing an online form that provides information about the data to be shared
  • Completing and signing the Data Sharing Agreement
  • Uploading data to the Project Data Sphere® platform
