Tallis terms and conditions

In order to download the Tallis 1.7 suite you must first request an account on OpenClinical.net. Once you have received your account credentials please review the terms and conditions of use below and, if they are acceptable, tick the box. You will now be able to use the link to download the software and install it on your computer.

The standard OpenClinical.net use licence allows you to use Tallis to create and upload applications to the OpenClinical.net repository at no charge. You may use it for testing, demonstrations to colleagues, research purposes etc, but its use is entirely the author's responsibility.  

When you are satisfied with your application you may decide to submit it for publication on Repertoire. This process is described on the Publishing page. There is no charge for this service but you are asked to provide a description and other documentation for your application using the standard documentation template which is available for download

Authors are also invited to submit an article about the application for publication on the open access journal Point of Care, which will be reviewed alongside the publet summary.

A publet can be enacted by OpenClinical users without charge. The PROforma source of the application can also be downloaded by members if the author permits reuse, which will be strongly encouraged though is not mandatory.
