Using this screen you are able to create a study:
Firstly, please note that OSCAR is freely available to use for academic research. We just ask in return that you cite the related methodological reference article: De Matteis S, Jarvis D, Young H, Young A, Allen N, Potts J, Darnton A, Rushton L, Cullinan P. Occupational self-coding and automatic recording (OSCAR): a novel web-based tool to collect and code lifetime job histories in large population-based studies. Scand J Work Environ Health. 2017 Mar 1;43(2):181-186.
Secondly, the responses collected via OSCAR may be linked with existing data. A unique identifier can be assigned to each participant and included in the email invitations sent to request OSCAR participation. Then, when a participant accesses OSCAR, they are requested to enter the unique identifier provided. This will be returned in their records in the final downloaded data. Other than the unique identifier OSCAR does not collect, process or store any personal identifiable data, as such OSCAR is unable to identify or re-identify any individual participant. Therefore, if a participant does not provide a unique identifier then their data will be considered fully anonymised with a blank value in this field.
