Preparing Data for Sharing
Guide to Social Science Data Archiving
Distributed for Amsterdam University Press
This data guide takes readers through the cycle of social science research, from applying for a research grant, through conducting the data collection phase, and ultimately to preparing the data for deposit in archives or data repositories. An adaptation of the fourth edition of the Guide to Social Science Data Preparation and Archiving of 2009 by the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research at the University of Michigan, this publication will help researchers to manage, document, and archive their data and to think broadly about which types of digital content should be deposited in such an archive.
