Data request or peep show?
According to an online dictionary, the noun "request" is defined as "an act of asking politely or formally for something". Once made, requests are either (a) granted, (b) denied, or (c) ignored. In the case of the website called clinicalstudydatarequest.com, most speakers of English would assume that the "something" being requested is data. So it seems reasonable that a researcher requesting data would be eligible to receive same, but surprisingly, this is not the case. Instead, they are allowed a distant peek through a web portal. Having discussed the misleading nature of this website's name with Dr Doshi, I propose the more accurate "clinicalstudydatapeepshow.com".
