NCAA Injury Surveillance Program Data Requests

For nearly 10 years, the NCAA has supported the Datalys Injury Statistics Clearinghouse, a scientific program that provides de-identified injury surveillance data to researchers affiliated with academic institutions. This program has resulted in the publication of more than 30 peer-reviewed manuscripts, which have made significant contributions to scientific understanding of the injury and illness trends of NCAA student-athletes. This program is managed by the Datalys Center, with whom the NCAA partners to manage the NCAA Injury Surveillance Program.

Notice of DISC Application Moratorium

In the last 18 months, interest from the research community in de-identified ISP data has increased rapidly. Consequently, as part of a broader effort to update and refine the policies and procedures guiding this program, the NCAA Sport Science Institute announces a forthcoming moratorium on requests for these data.

The moratorium will begin November 7, 2018 and is expected to be lifted in Spring 2019.

During the moratorium, the SSI will work with the Datalys Center to streamline the Datalys Injury Statistics Clearinghouse process and provide a more efficient system. Researchers working on upcoming projects that require the use of NCAA injury data may submit a request using the existing DISC application before November 7, 2018. Applications using the existing DISC application and received on or after November 7 will not be reviewed. A refreshed application process will be available to researchers in Spring 2019.

If you have questions about the moratorium, please contact the SSI at ssi@ncaa.org.
