Resource Entitlement Management System (REMS)

REMS is an open source tool for management of access rights to electronic resources, such as research datasets. Applicants can use their federated user IDs to log in to REMS, fill in the data access application and agree to the dataset's terms of use. The REMS system then circulates the application to the resource owner or designated representative for approval. REMS also produces the necessary reports on the applications and the granted data access rights. See the REMS leaflet for details on how REMS integrates to a data archive.
