Bridging the data divide: Economical repository management in the openICPSR Cloud

Presenter 1
Linda Detterman
ICPSR - University of Michigan

Organizations desire to meet changing federal research requirements requiring public access data sharing as well as satisfy the growing global call for replication and transparency of data analyses. However, organizations have limited resources to expend on user support, technical staffing, and the infrastructure development and maintenance needed to support public-access, data-sharing services. This environment has made hosted data sharing in the cloud a solid alternative to costly do-it-yourself (build-it-yourself) repository management. With a growing need at the organizational level for effective and experienced, but economically feasible data sharing, ICPSR researched and developed a public-access, data-sharing service for use by institutions and journals. This poster will highlight the research findings and demonstrate the features and benefits of openICPSR for Institutions and Journals, a fully-hosted, data-sharing service for use by organizations, departments, and journals of all sizes.
