Gary King An Introduction to the Dataverse Network as an Infrastructure for Data Sharing Sociological Methods & Research 2007 36: 173-199.

The author introduces a set of integrated developments in Web application software, networking, data citation standards, and statistical methods designed to increase scholarly recognition for data contributions; to put some of the universe of data and data-sharing practices on firmer ground; and to facilitate the public distribution of persistent, authorized, and verifiable data, with powerful and easy-to-use technology, even when the data are confidential or proprietary. The goal is to solve some of the political and sociological problems of data sharing via technological means, with the result intended to benefit both the scientific community and the sometimes apparently contradictorygoals of individual researchers.

Key Words: informatics • data sharing • data archiving • virtual hosting • statistical analysis
