After depositing

Aspects to keep in mind after you deposit your data:

Overview of datasets

Under My datasets you will find an overview of your datasets, including a download history under the Activity log tab. You can also see who downloaded your data, unless a user has opted to remain anonymous.

Request for access to your dataset

If you have selected the access category Restricted Access (request permission), you will receive an email from DANS as soon as someone wants to use your data. The email contains a link to the requestor’s contact details and motivation. You can choose one of three actions in response:

  1. Return, more information required: Select this option if you want to receive additional information from the requestor.
  2. Grant access: Select this option if you want to grant the requestor access to your data.
  3. Deny access: Select this option if you refuse to give access to your data.

Using the dataset is subject to the General Conditions of Use. You can also impose additional conditions on the user. It is important that you use your EASY account with a stable email address.

Citing your dataset

If you want to refer to the data you have just deposited, use the following format in accordance with the DataCite recommendations):
