ICPSR releases new edition and Web version of "Guide to Social Science Data Preparation and Archiving"

ICPSR is pleased to announce the release of the fifth edition of the “Guide to Social Science Data Preparation and Archiving,” with new and updated information on data management plans, video files, respondent disclosure protection, and virtual data enclaves.

For the first time, we have developed a Web-based version of the Guide, providing a quicker and more efficient way to browse the material. A PDF version is also available.

First published in 1997, the Guide is a compilation of best practices gleaned from the experience of many archivists and investigators. It is aimed at those engaged in the cycle of research, from applying for research grants, through data collection, and ultimately to preparation of data for deposit in a public archive.

The new online version includes links to complementary content such as ICPSR tutorial videos and related literature.
