Qualitative Data Repository (QDR): Deposit Process

Contact QDR early for advice!

Advice is available from QDR at every step of the research process, even at the beginning!

Researchers are encouraged to initiate a data project early in the research process, even before beginning to collect data ( i.e., submit just the minimum required information about the project without any data files). The earlier researchers engage with QDR, the more assistance is available, such as how to collect data in ways that maximize sharing.

After the Initial Deposit, QDR staff will contact you within 5 business days.

Initiating a Deposit Project (After Registration and Login)
