At IU, how can I apply for an account on the SDA or RFS?
To request an account on the Scholarly Data Archive (SDA) or Research File System (RFS):
- For instructions on requesting an individual SDA or RFS account, see At IU, if I already have some computing accounts, how do I get others?
- For instructions on requesting an SDA or RFS account for an IU
group or department, see Requesting IU computing accounts for groups or departments.
Note:In accordance with standards for access control mandated by the HIPAA Security Rule, you are not permitted to access data containing protected health information (PHI) using a group (or departmental) account. To ensure accountability and permit access to authorized users only, IU researchers must use their personal Network ID credentials for all work involving PHI.
After submitting your account request, UITS will notify you via email when your account is ready for use.
For eligibility requirements, see the "Research system accounts (all campuses)" section in What computing accounts are available at IU, and for whom?
If an account that you want does not appear to be available, contact your campus Support Center, and staff will assist you.
