    State Department grant awarded to the Moynihan Institute

    QDR, co-directed by Colin Elman and Diana Kapiszewski, is the first repository in the United States purpose-built for qualitative social science data.  Until recently, U.S. social scientists rarely shared qualitative data, in part due to uncertainty about where and how to do so.  QDR provides a secure location to deposit and access data while maintaining a commitment to protect human subjects and address copyright concerns.  Read more...
