Principles for use of data from NOCCA
All external suggestions for topics of analysis / specific papers shall be handed to NOCCA principle investigator (PI) of any Nordic country, in the form of a short study application, as specified below. If the application is formally acceptable, it will be distributed to all other PIs of the Nordic countries. If the study requires use of the NOCCA Job Exposure Matrix, the application will also be forwarded to the NOCCA JEM Team. If the suggested topic has not been assigned to some other persons, and if the PIs judge that the proposed study is feasible and worth doing, the data can be used by the applicant inside or outside the NOCCA group upon signature of a data transfer agreement, to be signed by each national PI. Each country is free to opt out of any study.
Please note that costs to cover the data management and preparation may be charged to the individual/group requesting use of the data. At least one representative of each participating country should be included in the publications. If the study requires use of the NOCCA Job Exposure Matrix, at least one of the JEM Team should be on the list of authors. If separate permissions by ethical or data inspection board need to updated for a specific article, they are under responsibility of the applicant in collaboration with the country NOCCA PI.
