The Project

VerbundFDB - Setup and design of a research data infrastructure for empirical educational research

Collecting and sharing research data and information is one of the most urgent strategic tasks for an efficient and quality-assured research (e.g. Wissenschaftsrat 2012  , accessed on 21.08.2014).

Against this background, the three institutes Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)  commissioned DIPF | Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education  , GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences   and Institute for Educational Quality Improvement (IQB)   have joined forces to provide offers and services for empirical educational research in the areas of data archiving and data provision as well as advice on research data management. The VerbundFDB collaborates in an expanded network of research data centres to secure and make available data related to educational research.

Our goals

The VerbundFDB is building a technological, organisational and legal infrastructure. A focus is placed on four central objectives. The network secures research data in a protected environment, offers research data and instruments after archival review and preparation, provides information about the study and data stock at a central location, and provides qualification and training on data management issues.

The project team

The three project partners contribute their respective expertise to the network. DIPF is responsible for the coordination and qualitative data sets, while GESIS is responsible for the quantitative survey and aggregate data, and the IQB for quantitative data from competence and achievement tests.

The three project partners

DIPF   has been supporting research, policy and practice in the field of education for over 60 years through its scientific infrastructure and diverse research activities. As Germany's largest infrastructure facility for the social sciences, GESIS   provides researchers at all levels of their research projects with its expertise and services. The IQB   is a scientific institution of Germany‘s federal states and is an affiliated institute of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

The Research Data Centre (RDC) for Education   at DIPF currently offers about 2100 video files and 2500 other files (e.g. transcripts) as well as an instrument database with scale documentation, questionnaire and test archive. GESIS‘s Data Archive for the Social Sciences  , founded in 1960, offers data services on more than 5,300 studies in national and international comparative survey research. The Research Data Centre at the IQB   archives the data sets of national and international educational studies with competence measurements (including PISA, TIMSS, IGLU and IQB National Assessment Studies) and makes them available for secondary analyses.

The research data centres of the participating institutes are committed to the   criteria  of the German Data Forum (RatSWD)  .
