The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) is an international leader in social science data access, curation, and methods analysis. As part of an ICPSR member institution, researchers at Ohio State University have access to a wealth of data sets, publications, data curation and preservation services, and educational resources. In this Faculty Forum, faculty from Political Science and History will discuss their experiences using ICPSR to find and deposit data, and in participating in the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research. Faculty from the University Libraries will give an overview of how attendees can get started finding and depositing data with ICPSR. This session will be of interest to faculty and students who use social science data in their research.
This panel discussion is part of the Research Commons Faculty Forum Series. Light refreshments will be served.
