EURODATA Newsletter Imprint

This newsletter is intended to contribute to facilitate data-based comparative research on European societies and polities. It is a product of the EURODATA Research Archive and has three major objectives:

  • to disseminate information on the research activities of the Mannheim Centre for European Social Research, with particular emphasis on data-generating cross-national research the archive is involved in;
  • to provide information on European data infrastructures and important developments;
  • to provide a forum for the exchange of information on ongoing comparative social research on European societies and on European integration.

The newsletter is intended to be an open forum: contributions from other research institutes and individual researchers are always welcome. The EURODATA Newsletter will, as a rule, be divided into eight sections:

  • Feature reports substantive findings from on-going cross-national research.
  • Data Infrastructure reports on data institutions such as data archives, governmental and non-governmental organisations, and covers historical developments and current modes of access to data.
  • Research Institutes presents profiles of research institutions with a cross-national orientation.
  • Research Groups and Projects informs on cooperations and networks in comparative social research on Europe.
  • Computer deals with specific aspects of electronic information processing and the use of electronic networks in comparative research.
  • Country Profile provides background information on individual countries.
  • European Social Indicators gives a picture of the social structure of European societies.
  • Noticeboard provides general news including information about new statistics, recent books and studies, conference reports and announcements.
