Sponsorship and Hosting
JEDI is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (award 2032661), and sponsored by five members of the Data Preservation Alliance for the Social Sciences (Data‐PASS). Data-PASS is a voluntary partnership of organizations created to archive, catalog, and preserve data used for social science research.
The five Data-PASS members taking the lead on organizing JEDI are:
Databrary, at New York University and Pennsylvania State University
The Howard W. Odum Institute for Research in Social Science at the University of North Carolina‐Chapel Hill
The Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) at Harvard University
The Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) at the University of Michigan
The Qualitative Data Repository (QDR) at Syracuse University
JEDI is hosted by QDR. Hosting entails providing technical support, managing the resources required for JEDI’s operation, and moderating the mailing list.
JEDI policies will be decided by a group consisting of editors of five social science journals and representatives from the repositories that organized JEDI.
