Apply for SAIL Gateway User Access

Remote access via SAIL Gateway

Once safe researcher training has been completed, all members of your project team requiring access to view the data for analysis must now gain approval to use the SAIL Gateway. This allows researchers to access approved data remotely from anywhere in the world, at any time of day, to conduct analysis using a suite of pre-installed statistical packages.

You are required to submit the following documents with your application:

1. A copy of your CV.

2. Evidence of completion of Safe Researcher Training, or equivalent. 

Following submission of your application you will be emailed a copy of the SAIL Data Access Agreement which outlines the conditions of using SAIL that all data users must abide by. Once this has been signed and returned, your account request will be processed.

Upon approval, you will then receive details to log in to the SAIL Gateway using your preferred desktop computer. Secure remote access is via a Virtual Private Network (VPN) where the specific data you have requested is presented in a ‘view only’ format for analysis.

More details about the SAIL Gateway can be found in this case report.
