I hope this message finds you healthy and safe at home. I'm a Social Psychologist and Program Manager of the The Love Consortium-a global network of researchers on a mission: to advance the scientific study of social connection through greater collaboration. Our hope is to bring together researchers from multiple disciplines to collaborate on research using archived datasets.
We've heard so many stories of researchers having to pause their data collection efforts as a result of the novel coronavirus. If you are among that group, I'd encourage you to explore the datasets currently available within our online, openly searchable dataverse to see if one or more might suit your research questions.
Alternatively, if you are looking for ways to make a positive impact for other researchers during this time, we'd love it if you would consider contributing a dataset description to the dataverse. It takes less than an hour to create a dataset record in the dataverse and there's no expectation to post data outright-just the willingness to consider collaborating if someone sees your dataset description and reaches out about a relevant research question.
We are hosting a few webinars this week if you would like to learn more. Please sign up or reach out for more information.
