Data access and sharing


CEU welcomes proposals for data access and sharing by bona fide researchers.

Data access in CEU is coordinated through the Richard Doll Centenary Archive of the Nuffield Department of Population Health. The archive was established in 2012, on the centenary of the birth of Professor Sir Richard Doll, to ensure continuing access to the department’s many rich epidemiological datasets for public health benefit. The archive’s Data Access and Sharing Policy can be found here. Individual studies within CEU, while all adhering to these principles, may have differing approaches to data sharing depending on their design, consent model and regulatory constraints.


Requests for access to CEU data should be made by email to the Data Access Coordinator for the Richard Doll Centenary Archive (, using the Richard Doll Archive Data Access Preliminary Enquiry Form.
