Happy Birthday, ICPSR Bibliography!




Twenty years ago, the National Science Foundation provided funding to create the ICPSR Bibliography of Data-related Literature. Launched in the fall of 2000, the Bibliography turns 20 this year! We invite you to join our birthday celebration all week long.

Far-reaching impact

The ICPSR Bibliography of Data-related Literature is a freely-available, searchable database of citations to published and unpublished scholarly works. The database currently contains over 93,000 citations, with hundreds more added every month. Each citation has two-way links: out to the publication and into ICPSR’s study catalog, providing access to the data being analyzed in the publications. Because of these linkages, the Bibliography facilitates data discovery and literature searches by social scientists, students, librarians, journalists, policymakers, and funding agencies.

Today, the Bibliography is supported by the ICPSR Membership and ICPSR’s topical archive sponsors, who see the Bibliography’s value to both data producers and data users, and have invested in building the Bibliography for their collections.
