QDR seeks to encourage scholars to manage, archive, and share the data arising from qualitative and multi-method research. Similarly, QDR hopes to foster the reuse of shared data to evaluate scholarly claims, answer different research questions, and enhance teaching.
In order to achieve these goals, QDR makes available diverse guidance and resources to help researchers to prepare their data for sharing via QDR, and to access and make use of data projects stored in QDR.
