The data is provided freely to all interested researchers under the following conditions:

–  The data is to be used only for academic research purposes. It should not be used for commercial or profit-making activities.

– Please do not pass any data you have received from us on to others (apart from colleagues working on the same analysis). The reason for this condition is that we wish to be able to keep all data users informed of updates or other developments to the data. If you have colleagues outside your immediate research team who are interested in obtaining the data, you should not share the data with them. Instead please ask them to contact us directly to obtain a copy of the data.

– You will acknowledge the source of the data (including specifically mentioning the Children’s Worlds project) in any publications or other dissemination activities.

–  You will inform us in advance of any publications, presentations or other dissemination activities that you undertake using the data. This helps us monitor the data usage. The key contact for this purpose is Hanita Kosher, the project coordinator (hanita.kosher@mail.huji.ac.il)

  – Please also note that the children who participated in the Children’s Worlds study willingly shared with us a great deal of detailed personal information about their daily lives and their families. We trust that you will make every effort to meet acceptable ethical and research standards. Please respect the confidentiality of the children and do not try to identify the children, their families, or their communities.
