Safe analysis and storage of your research data.

Why is OPEN Analyse a safe solution?

OPEN Analyse is an analysis environment where you as a researcher can analyse your pseudoanonymised research data on a platform that comply with current requirements to data protection. The environment can be used as an analytical platform for both clinical studies, qualitative studies, as well as register research.

OPEN Analyse acts as a terminal server solution where the researcher's PC is the terminal and data is stored and processed securely on a server at the Regional IT. The analysis environment consists of disk space with logging of file access for treating pseudoanonymised data and analysis software in the form of STATA, NVivo and R.

Who can use OPEN Analyse?

Projects that are or will be admitted to OPEN.

Researchers in the Region of Southern Denmark and the Department of Clinical Research, University of Southern Denmark (SDU), can use OPEN Analyse free of charge.

With paying OPEN projects from other SDU institutions or hospitals in the Region of Southern Denmark (RSD), that already use or wish to use OPEN's REDCap installation, the few data management hours, that come with user creation and guidance for the use of OPEN Analysis, will be recorded as part of the 30 data management hours, which are usually covered by the project's standard payment and license agreement with OPEN. Therefore, no extra costs exist unless you need data manager hours beyond the agreed.

Storage of data in OPEN Analyse and OPEN Storage is free of charge for up to 200 GB, the project will be invoiced DKK 2.000 for every further 300 GB made available.

For projects from other SDU Departments that do not use or wish to use REDCap, but need access to OPEN Analyse for e.g. register research, the administration, access, operation and use of OPEN Analyse will be invoiced according to OPENs price list found at: Application for OPEN

How do I access OPEN Analyse?

You get access to OPEN Analyse by applying for the admission of your project into OPEN, application forms, etc. can be found at: Application for OPEN. If your project is already admitted into OPEN e.g. by using REDCap, you must simply send an email to, then an addition to the existing license agreement will be made.
