Linda Detterman

Tuesday, 12/12/2017, 2:00pm.   ARCHIVED EVENT

Location: 1430 ISR, 426 Thompson St, Ann Arbor 48104

ISR Perspectives presents Linda Detterman – ICPSR’s Marketing and Membership Director – as the next speaker in the ‘Getting to Know ISR’ series.

Detterman will discuss why ICPSR matters to you:

• How is ICPSR assisting scientists from over and research projects from over 40 disciplines to demonstrate research impact?

• Why do over 51,700 unique data users download over 2.5 million datasets from among the 76,000 datasets available (8,200 studies) available from ICPSR in a typical year?

• Why do nearly 1,000 participate in ICPSR’s Summer Program each year?

• Why are 763 institutions members of ICPSR paying an annual fee?

• Why do over 20 agencies, foundations, journals, and research projects utilize ICPSR’s infrastructure to share their on-demand and restricted-use data?

Data Curation – ICPSR’s data are organized, described, cleaned, enhanced, and preserved by ICPSR Staff for future use by scientists today and years from today. Curated data are monitored, tracked, and linked to research works inspired by those data. This session will introduce how it’s done and provide additional answers to the questions above.

Refreshments provided!
