Trials and Pricing: If you are a faculty member or PhD with funding and are interested in one of the non-subscribed datasets, use WRDS' "Contact WRDS Support" form (after logging in) to inquire about a trial, data sample, and pricing. Typically, individual NYU scholars, schools, departments, and programs fund annual subscriptions to data via WRDS. WRDS will connect you with our NYU WRDS reps and the vendor.
Annual Subscriptions vs. One-Time Pulls: WRDS only sells annual contracts to datasets via their interface. If you require a one-time, custom data pull for your research, consider reaching out directly to the original data provider - not WRDS - for a price quote. (Vendors typically charge by the data point or row, so be sure to share with them the scope of your data needs.) One-time, custom purchases are typically more cost effective than an annual contract.
