Best Practice in
Archiving Qualitative Data (NIRSA) Working Paper Series No. 65.
NIRSA - National Institute for Regional and Spatial Analysis.
The value of data archiving is increasingly recognized in Irish research policy.
For example, IRCHSS requires that “whenever data is to be collected with the
support of a grant awarded by IRCHSS, applicants must specify the means by
which that data will be made available as a public good for use by other
researchers.” The Higher Education Authority policy on open access states that:
“Data in general should as far as is feasible be made openly accessible, in
keeping with best practice for reproducibility of scientific results.”1 In order to
meet these requirements, researchers and research organisations must
consider how to manage and process data for archiving, as well as the ethical
and legal issues (see Box 1) involved, when planning research projects.
