Data Preparation and Release Window

3ie’s new Data Preparation and Release Window (DPRW) will provide up to US$10,000 to authors of impact evaluations for preparing their raw datasets and accompanying codebooks for public use and online release.

The intent of the DPRW is to fill the gap in public data accessibility, as funding requirements and professional standards are catching up to the wave of impact evaluations in international development. DPRW is designed to help mitigate the costs of preparing older datasets for public release so that those data can be used for policy-influential analysis.

The window is only available for datasets used in papers published before September 1, 2013. You can direct general enquiries about the programme to dprw@3iempact.org.
