DistillerSR Academic & Student Frequently Asked Questions

We have made changes to DistillerSR’s student and faculty pricing options. These changes will allow us to better address the needs of our academic subscribers.

Can I assign my project to someone else?

No. Projects are not transferable.

How long do I have access to my data after my project?

Your project data will be maintained in our system and will be fully recoverable for one year after your account lapses.

Where is my project data stored? Is it secure?

All DistillerSR Student project data is stored using a secure, regulatory-compliant cloud platform, just like our commercial clients’ data.

I don’t know how to start my project. Can you help?

DistillerSR includes a comprehensive online user guide that walks you through the basics of setting up your first project. You can also use one of the included project templates to get up and running quickly.

All of our Student users can join the Distiller Help Forum, a moderated, searchable community forum that connects DistillerSR users and Evidence Partners product experts.

Can I upgrade to a non-student plan in the future? Will I still have access to my data?

Yes! If you are currently subscribed as a student we will simply upgrade your account. We maintain project data in our system for one year, so if your subscription has lapsed you can restart your subscription anytime within a year and your data will still be in your account.
