ready Data Documentation Initiative Lifecycle

Abbreviation: DDI-Lifecycle


General Information
Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) Lifecycle (DDI-Lifecycle, DDI-L) is designed to document and manage data across the entire life cycle, from conceptualization to data publication, analysis and beyond. The freely available international DDI standards describe data that result from observational methods in the social, behavioral, economic, and health sciences. DDI is used to document data in over 80 countries of the world. It encompasses all of the DDI-Codebook specification and extends it. Based on XML Schemas, DDI-Lifecycle is modular and extensible.

Scholars Portal Dataverse
Scholars Portal Dataverse is a repository of research data in all fields of research. Researchers can share, publish, archive, find and cite data across all research fields. Researchers from subscribing institutions can use Dataverse to directly deposit data, create metadata, release and share data openly or privately, visualize and explore data, and search for data.

UK Data Archive
The UK Data Archive is an internationally acknowledged centre of expertise in acquiring, curating and providing access to social science and humanities data. We were founded in 1967, at the University of Essex, with the support of the then Social Science Research Council, with the aim of curating high-quality research data for analysis and reuse. The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has continued to provide long-term commitment to the Data Archive and we are now a significant part of their UK data infrastructure. Since 2005 we have been designated a Place of Deposit by the National Archives, allowing us to curate public records. The UK Data Archive is the lead organisation of the UK Data Service, which provides unified access to the UK's largest collection of social, economic and population data. Funded by the ESRC, the UK Data Service provides access to regional, national and international social and economic data, support for policy-relevant research and guidance and training for the development of skills in data use.

CLOSER Discovery
CLOSER Discovery enables researchers to search and browse questionnaires and data from eight leading UK longitudinal studies. Relevant survey questions and variables, which can be filtered by study, topic and life stage, are available. Accessing data from each study varies according to the source and data type.

DesignSafe Data Depot Repository
The Data Depot Repository (DDR) is the platform for curation and publication of datasets generated in the course of natural hazards research. The DDR is an open access data repository that enables data producers to safely store, share, organize, and describe research data, towards permanent publication, distribution and impact evaluation. The DDR allows data consumers to discover, search for, access, and reuse published data in an effort to accelerate research discovery. The DDR is one component of the DesignSafe cyberinfrastructure, which represents a comprehensive research environment that provides cloud-based tools to manage, analyze, understand, and publish critical data for research to understand the impacts of natural hazards. DesignSafe is part of the NSF-supported Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI), and aligns with its mission to provide the natural hazards research community with open access, shared-use scholarship, education, and community resources aimed at supporting civil infrastructure prior to, during, and following natural disasters. However, DesignSafe also supports the broader natural hazards research community that extends beyond the NHERI network.
