The NoHoW Dataset

The NoHoW dataset will be stored at the Danish National Archive (DNA), from where it can be requested via the NoHoW Scientific Management group.

The main aim of the group is to ensure that NoHoW data is used for research purposes only, and that data is utilised in an optimal way, for instance to avoid redundancy by having more than one project working on similar or very related aim.

The data is now available from the DNA. To access the data from the DNA, you will need to get in touch with the NoHoW Scientific Management Group using the form below.  Note that in order to satisfy constraints of the study informed consent, to gain access to the data, a member of the NoHoW consortium must be included as a research partner and a research collaboration agreement/contract signed before access is granted.

More specifically, the tasks and work of the Scientific Management group are to ensure:

  • the scientific quality and originality are optimal by ordinary standards
  • that there will be no redundancy, where more than one project is working on similar or very related aim
  • that the necessary resources to perform the requested project, regarding research competence and facilities are available or can be provided.

Once this is established and your request approved, we will send you a data sharing agreement.

Members of the NoHoW Scientific Management group are:

  • Graham Horgan, James Hutton Institute, Scotland (Data management and analyses, Current Chair of the Scientific Management group),
  • Professor Berit L Heitmann, RegionH, Denmark (Coordinator of NoHoW and Principal Investigator of the NoHoW trial in Denmark),
  • Professor James R Stubbs, University of Leeds (Principal Investigator of the NoHoW trial and Principal Investigator of the NoHoW trial in the UK), and
  • Professor Antonio Palmeira, University of Lisbon, Portugal (Principal Investigator of the NoHoW trial in Portugal).

The NoHoW Scientific Management group meets at an ad hoc basis by conference calls (within no more than 2 months after application) to assess new project proposals, using the form provided. The group seeks agreement on its decisions including the nomination of new or replacing members. In case of disagreement, majority decisions are taken. In the case of voting, the Chair has the deciding vote.

Access will be granted to a dataset with 100% anonymised data only.
