A researcher is an individual or group seeking data from an organisation to conduct research. To access the data, the researcher must have a valid data passport, which verifies their identity and purpose for the data request. Using the data catalog, the researcher can browse available variables and add them to their shopping cart. Once the cart is complete, the researcher submits a data request for approval by the data request approver. If the data request meets all requirements and is approved, the researcher is onboarded to the platform and granted access to the requested data for their stated research purpose. The role of the researcher is critical in ensuring the quality and integrity of the data is maintained, and that it is accessed and used in a secure and controlled manner.
