Perhaps you are considering or have already decided to deposit your data at DARIS. Given the advantages and importance of data sharing and preservation, we strongly support this! Preparing and depositing data is relatively easy, provided that research is conducted following sound data management practices during the life of a project.
DARIS accepts for deposit data from projects in all social science and related research domains. We accept data from both quantitative and qualitative research projects.
Depositing your data at DARIS involves three main steps:
1) First, you must register your project in the DARIS research inventory, if you haven’t done so already.
2) Next, you should prepare your data file so that it is anonymised, clean, and edited, with appropriate labeling and descriptions.
