Qualitative Data Repository (QDR)

9:00 am to 12:00 am


Event Description

Taubman Health Sciences Library: 
  • Qualitative researchers at the University of Michigan have a new option for sharing and preserving qualitative and mixed-methods research data — the Qualitative Data Repository (QDR). Use the QDR archive to preserve, share, and discover a wide range of digital data and accompanying documentation generated or collected through qualitative and mixed-method research in the social sciences.
  • By sharing your data, you’ll get more citations to your work and greater recognition of your work. Also, many grant-funders, especially federal grants, now require that data be shared. QDR has staff that are dedicated to helping you prepare your data to be deposited. You’re not on your own to figure out de-identification, data description, and security levels.
  • QDR is available via the U-M Library's licensed institutional membership. It’s supported by the National Science Foundation, and hosted by the Center for Qualitative and Multi-Method Inquiry, a unit of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.
  • Don’t forget, for sharing and preserving other research output, including data, use U-M’s own institutional repository, Deep Blue, which houses documents, videos, digital research data, and more.
