ICPSR Webinar: Orientation to openICPSR

ICPSR (Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research) is planning a webinar for the launch of openICPSR, ICPSR’s public-access data sharing collection, and the launch of openICPSR for Institutions and Journals.


This 60-minute webinar will start with an orientation to openICPSR – a data-sharing service for the social and behavioral sciences. It is a self-publishing data service that allows the public to access research data at no charge, meeting federal and/or journal requirements for open access to digital research data.


Launched in beta form in Feburary 2014, openICPSR has emerged with several improvements on the usability front and the ability to disseminate restricted-use data. The session will then progress to an orientation to openICPSR for Institutions and Journals. This service was developed to meet the needs of universities, journals, professional associations, research centers, and departments that desire a fully-hosted (no tech staff or patches required!), economical, and professionally-run research data repository with the ability to demonstrate the research impact of the organization.


The webinar will be held on Feb 10, 2015 at 12:00 PM EST. This webinar is free and open to the public. All interested people can register at the following link.
