Dataset Access

To gain access to the dataset and download the files on this page, please download the EULA (End User License Agreement) below. The EULA should be printed, signed, scanned and returned as a single .pdf document via email to i.patras@qmul.ac.uk with the subject line "DEAP account request". Please, send the request using your institutional email, i.e. not your yahoo, googlemail, etc account. Please state in your email your position, your institution and in 1-2 sentences the purpose fo the study. Upon receipt, a username and password will be issued that can be used to download the data files below. Please note that the license of the dataset is for academic research only -- we therefore do not give access to companies and individuals, including interns to the industry.

Common problems


  1. The EULA is not signed.
  2. There is a separate attachment for each page of the EULA, or the two pages are cropped and combined in one.
  3. The request is from an individual or from a company.
  4. The subject of the email is not "DEAP account request". In this case, the email is very likely not to be answered at all - we filter the emails based on this.
