the first sentence in the paragraph from Wilson et al (2017) below does not make sense to me. Should it say negotiated instead of negated?
“Crucially, the use of DataSHIELD for vertically partitioned data can be negated if the data owners can authorise a pseudonymised version of the linked datasets to be sited with one of the data owners, or at a trusted third party facility such as the UK Secure eResearch Platform (UKSeRP) operated by Swansea University for the Farr Institute (Jones et al. 2004). In such a case, only a single-site DataSHIELD implementation would need to be implemented to provide a privacy-protected analysis mechanism.”
