ICPSR is a leader in acquiring, enhancing, managing, and disseminating digital social science data. As the demand for such services increases, we offer this description of our operations as a case study for those in other academic disciplines seeking to establish data repositories. We hope our expertise and the descriptions of best practices we've collected over the years will be a helpful guide to data managers across the spectrum of scientific research.
