Welcome to The Data Set!

Welcome to The Data Set, a new site primarily aimed at University of Dundee staff and students that brings together information from some of the UK’s best sources of data-related methodology, analysis and news.

Conceived and informed by Dr Alistair Geddes, this site has been produced as part of the remit of the Institute for Social Sciences Research (ISSR) to facilitate innovation in research methods and data analytics across the School of Social Sciences and the wider community.

The site consists of three parts:

  1. Automatically updated RSS and Twitter feeds from the UK Data Archive and Administrative Data Research Network amongst others
  2. Introductory videos from major UK-based sources of data guidance including the Urban Big Data Centre
  3. Blog section where staff and students can submit posts for upload and where the ISSR will feature the latest announcements and calls it has received from relevant organisations

We hope that you will bookmark The Data Set and that it will be of use to you. If you have any feedback on how we might improve things, leave a comment or get in touch with the ISSR.
