The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) is introducing “openICPSR,” a research data-sharing service for the social and behavioral sciences. openICPSR assists researchers in meeting requirements for public access to federally funded research data. It ensures that data depositors fulfill public-access requirements of grant and contract RFPs. Because depositors pay to deposit research data and documentation, the service allows the public to access research data at no charge.
You are welcome to join us in room 1300 of Henderson Library at 2pm on Monday, March 3 for an ICPSR orientation webinar to openICPSR. This webinar will cover the reason behind the public data collection, why researchers might use the service, and what other public access data services are in development as part of openICPSR. Presenters will also provide a short orientation to the site, and attendees will have ample time for Q&A.
