SSHOC has published a new report which describes the creation of the Ethnic and Migrant Minorities (EMM) Survey Registry, a free online database and tool that displays detailed information about existing quantitative surveys conducted with EMM populations in Europe. 

Jointly developed by SSHOC, the COST Action 16111 – ETHMIGSURVEYDATA (a network of 200+ EMM researchers across Europe), and a French Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR)-funded project, FAIRETHMIGQUANT, the registry was designed according to FAIR principles and provides a concrete example of how an interdisciplinary data community can drive the creation of  a FAIR-friendly tool for the social sciences using a bottom up, collaborative approach for the benefit of a wide range of stakeholders.

The registry is intended for use by researchers, policymakers, and other practitioners in their own research and/or policy-related activities. As a model of co-creation it will be of interest to data communities committed to making their data FAIR, to data curation actors looking to partner or connect with data producers or users for whom they can tailor their current data curation services, and to policy-makers working on open research and open data initiatives

The EMM Survey Registry is on track to be included in the SSHOC service catalogue and in the SSH Open Marketplace.
