I know this has already been mentioned in other forum postings but this issue came up again today with a client. Currently there is no pure read-only access rights in OpenClinica. There is monitoring rights which prevent data entry or modification but that still provides the ability to leave discrepancy notes and flag data. Clients want to view the data without the risk of data modification or creating an action. Please do not tell me to set these rights on the backend (Postgres database), this needs to be done through OpenClinica. Modifying the database directly has its own risk. I probably do not appreciate the difficulty in doing this but it seems it could be done by taking away the right to create notes from the monitor's access rights.
