Data for: Qualitative Data Sharing: Participant Understanding, Motivation, and Consent

Project Summary

As part of a qualitative study of abortion reporting in the United States, the research team conducted cognitive interviews to iteratively assess new question wording and introductions designed to improve the accuracy of abortion reporting in surveys (to be shared on the Qualitative Data Repository in a separate submission). As expectations to share the data that underlie research increase, understanding how participants, particularly those taking part in qualitative research, respond to requests for data sharing is necessary. We assessed research participants’ willingness to, understanding of, and motivations for data sharing.

Data for: Making Sense of Human Rights Diplomacy: Evidence from a US Campaign to Free Political Prisoners

Project Summary

Scholarship on human rights diplomacy (HRD)—efforts by government officials to engage publicly and privately with their foreign counterparts—often focuses on actions taken to “name and shame” target countries, because private diplomatic activities are unobservable. To understand how HRD works in practice, we explore a campaign coordinated by the US government to free twenty female political prisoners. We compare release rates of the featured women to two comparable groups: a longer list of women considered by the State Department for the campaign; and other women imprisoned simultaneously in countries targeted by the campaign. Both approaches suggest that ...

Annotation for Transparent Inquiry

Annotation for Transparent Inquiry (ATI) facilitates transparency in qualitative research by allowing scholars to “annotate” specific passages in an article. Annotations amplify the text and, when possible, include a link to one or more data sources underlying a claim; data sources are housed in a repository.
