De-identify Human Subjects Data
With researchers increasingly encouraged or required to share their data, preparing to share datasets with confidential identifiers of people and organizations is particularly challenging. Join JHU Data Services for an overview of types of identifiers and how to determine if your data have disclosure risk. You will also learn available JHU resources to help you with de-identifying data.
A list of de-identification software tools and applications that researchers can use in de-identifying their research data for more public sharing.
- Introduction to disclosure analysis and protection of personal and health identifiers in research data. This guide includes basic concepts and primary techniques focusing on preparing data for sharing with collaborators, repositories, or for public access.
- Downloadable guide for protecting and removing personal identifiers of research subjects for data sharing (downloadable guide).
Data Access and Discovery
Every scholarly article produced by Johns Hopkins full-time faculty should be made available in an open access repository.
This is only available to Johns Hopkins researchers. You can use PASS to submit your manuscripts to funder and institutional publication repositories (e.g. PubMed Central, JScholarship) and comply with open access policies.
