Access To Wisconsin Longitudinal Study Data

I agree to follow the NIH Public Access Policy requiring me to obtain a PubMed Central Reference number (PMCID) for published research. I will forward the PMCID and full bibliographic information to the WLS for use in progress reports and future funding applications. The Public Access Policy does not apply to dissertations, book chapters, conference proceedings, working papers or reports. However the policy does apply to any peer-reviewed paper using WLS data accepted for publication in a journal on or after April 7, 2008. For more information on this requirement please see

I agree to acknowledge the funding source for the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study and to cite the data release in any manuscripts, working papers, or published articles using this data. See How to Cite the WLS Data Properly.

I agree to inform WLS about any published papers for use in the WLS bibliography and for reporting purposes.
