Child Care and Early Education Research Connections

Resource Type: Administration for Children and Families/OPRE Projects
Principal Investigator(s): Smith, Sheila; Stephens, Samuel A.;
Date Issued: 2003
Description: The purpose of Child Care and Early Education Research Connections is to promote high quality research and to help inform policy. One of the primary ways we accomplish that goal is through an interactive and easily searchable website of over 29,000 resources on early care and education, including original scholarly research, government reports, fact sheets and briefs, datasets and instruments. Research Connections publishes its own bibliographies, research syntheses, and research-to-policy briefs, and supports new research by providing free downloads or on-line analysis of hundreds of child care and early education datasets and by conducting training on data analysis. Through its website, Research Connections is the central access point for products of federally-funded early care and education research workgroups. The project is operated through a partnership between the National Center for Children in Poverty, at the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research, at the University of Michigan. Objectives include: (1) ensure the long-term sustainability of Research Connections through up-to-date technology and standards-based architecture; (2) ensure a constantly evolving, complete and up-to-date collection, accessible and responsive to the needs of the early care and education community; (3) maintain and grow the archive of datasets, as well as the community of analysts who use them; (4) develop new and innovative ways to respond to the needs of our users and expand technical assistance and training related to data and methodology; and (5) engage new partners and stakeholders and encourage increased collaboration among researchers and policymakers.
