QDR Governance

Two advisory boards offer guidance to and assist QDR with the development and administration of the repository.  The current members of each board are listed below.

The Research Advisory Board focuses on QDR’s relationship with the scholarly community. The Technical Advisory Board focuses on QDR’s infrastructure and functions.

Initial members of the two advisory boards were selected by QDR’s co-directors and have agreed to serve a two year term expiring on December 31, 2015. Subsequent members will be elected to two year terms by QDR member institutions from a slate drawn up by a nominating committee.

Users interested in additional information on QDR’s advisory boards should consult the By-Laws of the Advisory Boards of the Qualitative Data Repository (QDR).
