The Repository at the Texas ERC contains private information about individuals. The release of data from the research center must not reveal or compromise the identity of those individuals. To ensure protection of this information and compliance with FERPA requirements, all research results and products (reports, summaries, presentations, proposals, etc.) must be reviewed by the Texas ERC before its release.
Researchers must submit requests for data review and approval in writing following the Review of Research Products Procedure. All requests for review and released products are logged. Under normal circumstances, the review will be completed in seven to ten working days. If a researcher requires more immediate action, s/he may attempt to negotiate a more expedient review directly with the research center.
