ISPS Launches New Data Archive
The overall mission of theISPS Data Archive is to promote the preservation of data in the social sciences, with an emphasis on data from randomized controlled trials. The Archive consists of replication files for studies conducted by ISPS-affiliated faculty and graduate students. The majority of digital content in the ISPS Data Archive currently consists of social science research data from experiments, program files with the code for analyzing these data, requisite documentation to use and understand the data, and associated files. Access to these files allows members of the scholarly community to validate the existence of a specific set of data, to gain access to a specific set of data (when permitted), to replicate analyses, and to view additional materials associated with a given study, including high quality metadata. Access to the ISPS Data Archive is provided at no cost and is granted for scholarship and research purposes only.
