Requested Study Types

As part of our commitment to promoting cross-platform data sharing efforts, Vivli offers users four different methods of obtaining studies for integration and analysis.

Vivli-Listed Studies and Provisioned Studies Data Requestors may search for studies listed on the Vivli Platform, and request those data package(s) within the Vivli platform using the Vivli Data Request Form.

Vivli-Listed Studies Provisioned By External Providers

Some Vivli Data Contributors have their studies included in the Vivli search, but the data request of the studies must be submitted on an External Provider’s platform. In this option the external provider would arrange for the Data Requestor to receive the data package(s) and then the Data Requestor would load the external provider’s data package(s)  onto the platform.

To facilitate this process, a Data Requestor would also add these studies to the Vivli DATA REQUEST FORM. This process is described step-by- step in our guide, How-To: Requesting studies on Vivli. If you have any questions about this process, please contact Vivli at support@vivli.org.

Studies provided on Vivli Partner Platforms (Not listed on Vivli) Or Other Data

Some Vivli Partners have studies available on their existing data sharing platforms or portals, but their studies can be brought into the Vivli platform for analysis.

If Data Requestors find a study in this category, they will request the data package for that study on the PARTNER PLATFORM and add it to their Vivli Data Request Form. This process is described step- by- step in our guide, How-To: Requesting studies on Vivli. If you have any questions about this process, please contact Vivli via support@vivli.org.

If you have additional data you want to bring into the Vivli platform

If you have data that you want to bring into the platform (e.g. from another source that does not fit into any of the categories listed above or you have your own data package), you may do so with permission. On your data request form, navigate to the “Other Data” option and select “I will upload data myself” under the Partner platform drop down and provide additional information about the data package. This process is described step- by-step in our guide, How-To: Requesting studies on Vivli. If you have any questions about this process, please contact Vivli via support@vivli.org.
