Accessible via the WRDS platform. Requires a WRDS registered account and an authorized UCLA network account.
UCLA WRDS accounts, which allow SSH access, are provided at the discretion of the UCLA WRDS Representative, and qualifications may exist. Alumni members of the community, UCLA undergraduate students, research colleagues outside the university, as well as others not actively employed or registered with UCLA, do not qualify for individual WRDS accounts, per WRDS policy, and the policy is strictly followed.
Current UCLA faculty, PhDs, and Master's students may request a WRDS account, for which access is by a login ID and password. Submit an online WRDS Account Request and select "Register for a WRDS Account." WRDS complete documentation is available online to account holders.
Important Note: Master's accounts with WRDS are suspended during the summer (in 2017: June 10, 2017 through Labor Day, Sept. 4, 2017), and new Master's account requests are not filled during that time.
Questions may be directed to the UCLA WRDS Representative.
Electronic resources, or databases, are covered by licenses limiting access to academic use by UCLA faculty, staff, and current UCLA students, with some limited to Anderson School use only. Please also read the UCLA Library policy on Appropriate Use of Licensed Electronic Resources. Violations of the University's contractual agreements with electronic resources vendors can and do result in the suspension of access to those resources for the entire UCLA community.
