The DataSHIELD mailing list is being replaced with a new DataSHIELD forum - this will provide support to DataSHIELD users and developers as well as help grow our DataSHIELD community. If your question is unanswered in the free to use forum or training materials below please contact us to get a quote for the costs to support your particular requirements.
