With many of faculty, students, and staff now working and studying remotely, we're here to help answer questions about remote access to data and related resources from ICPSR. Here are some quick tips if you are experiencing difficulty downloading data or accessing other ICPSR resources. Try these options first:
In addition to meeting funder and publisher requirements, sharing data increases the visibility of your research and opportunities for collaboration. Curate and share your research data in Digital Commons@Georgia Southern, OpenICPSR, or other data repositories available to you through the library.
Digital Commons@Georgia Southern is host to a growing number of data collections, which you can browse here. To get started, see the library's Guide to Curating & Sharing Data on the Data Management Services guide, then contact the Digital Commons Team for help preparing and hosting your data.
Have you heard about iThenticate? This tool for faculty researchers allows you to check your unpublished manuscripts for citation errors and potential similarity to other published works before you submit them for publication. See this brief overview of what it is and how to use it. You can contact your Library Liaison for assistance in setting up an account and running reports. Also, visit the Office of Research Integrity page on iThenticate for documentation and training videos.
