In the 200th issue of the Bulletin EBIB, a journal addressed primarily to Polish librarians and specialists in scientific information, an article entitled ‘Qualitative Data Archive at IFiS PAN in a New Version’ appeared (authors: Maciej Melon and Danuta Życzyńska-Ciołek).
On October 19, 2021, Maciej Melon presented the Qualitative Data Archive to the participants of the second edition of the Data Steward School, organized by Visnea sp. z o. o.
In the first part of the meeting, Maciej Melon presented the history of the Archive and outlined its current tasks related to the preservation of the cultural heritage of social sciences, data reinterpretation and research revisits. He also pointed to the transparency of methods and tools used by researchers, which the Archive promotes.
The second part of the meeting was more of a workshop character. After the presentation of the Archive’s tasks related to the daily work of archiving and making research data available – including the problems and doubts that arise – there were also questions from the participants, mainly concerning technical issues.
We are grateful for the invitation and the opportunity to share our experiences!
A new dataset entitled “Towards a Model of Polish Paradiplomacy” has been published in the QDA. The author of the collection is Dr. Igor Ksenicz from the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan. The dataset contains transcripts of interviews with representatives of circles responsible for creating Polish paradiplomacy: local government officials, government administration employees, and experts.
