Discovering and Harmonizing Questionnaire Data Using Social Networks

Presenter 1
Dan Smith

Question banks and metadata repositories have been a traditional resource used in the design of new questionnaires and a source for questions and variables used for secondary analysis. Meshing social networks with traditional repositories and new metadata standards presents fresh ways for researchers to collaborate. This presentation will examine how social networks can be used to find, rank, annotate, and harmonize items stored in repositories, using Colectica’s repository as an example. It will also show how researchers in similar areas can find and interact with each other through their use of common data and metadata items.
