Sharing Qualitative Data: The Launch of the Qualitative Data Repository

While data sharing, research transparency, and replication have customarily been prominent concerns for quantitative researchers, they are increasingly being seen as relevant for the qualitative tradition. The Qualitative Data Repository (QDR), which recently came online at Syracuse University, aims to select, ingest, curate, archive, manage, durably preserve, and provide access to digital data used in qualitative and multi-method research in the social sciences.  The repository develops and publicizes common standards and methodologically informed practices for these activities, as well as for the reusing and citing of qualitative data. It is hosted by the Center for Qualitative and Multi-Method Inquiry (a unit of Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs), and funded by the National Science Foundation.
