ICPSR’s Data Management and Curation Guide

Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) website has a new section devoted to Data Management and Curation, which provides a general guide on research data quality, preservation, access, confidentiality, and citation, and also explains how ICPSR, as a social science research data archive, is working hard to address all these issues. There is also a Tools & Services section compiling recommended applications that could help researchers deal with data confidentiality, restricted-use data, data processing, and dissemination.

In January 2014, ACRL/Numeric and Spatial Data Interest Group invited ICPSR’s Director of Curation Services, Jared Lyle, to offer a webinar for data librarians on the subject of social science data management and curation. The slides and recording of the webinar are available for viewing now.
