SSRC Grant


News | 2006 - SSRC Grant

05.01.06. The McGannon Center has received a $25,000 grant from the Social Science Research Council to support a collaboration between the Center and the SSRC focusing on the development of a data consortium for communications policy research.  This project will involve an investigation of the primary commercial data sources that are central to communications policy research, the access norms associated with these data sources, and possible mechanisms for achieving wider access to such data for policy researchers.  In conjunction with this project, the McGannon Center is developing a white paper exploring the role of commercial databases in communications policymaking and policy analysis.  This white paper is expected to be completed on July of 2006 and will be available on the McGannon Center's web site as part of the Center's Working Paper Series.
