A new joint initiative launched by the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) will help researchers have access to improved metadata and new tools as they search through and analyze the General Social Survey (GSS) and the American National Election Studies (ANES). The two-year project, named Metadata Portal for the Social Sciences, is supported by a collaborative research grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

This interesting news was brought to us by PRWeb in their article, “Metadata Technology Collaborating with NORC, ICPSR, and Partners on Improving Researchers Access to GSS and ANES Surveys.”

Metadata is a valuable digital tool to make search results as comprehensive as possible. Another tool that enhances your search experience is a taxonomy. A strong standards-based taxonomy is one with true integrity. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
