OFFERED BY THE CENTER FOR PUBLIC HEALTH LAW RESEARCH
Once a policy surveillance dataset has been coded and finalized through quality control, researchers have a number of options for publishing the data internally or externally, as well as using the data to support their work in many ways, including conducting evaluation studies. Researchers may also wish to maintain their dataset by updating it as changes occur or as new, relevant laws or policies are enacted.
This webinar is the final installment of a five-part advanced series that reviews in-depth each step of the policy surveillance process for scientific legal mapping. This webinar will discuss publication options and the variety of ways a dataset may be used in research and practice. It will also review the process for tracking changes and updating a dataset, including the process for converting a cross-sectional dataset to a longitudinal dataset that tracks laws and policies over time.
- Introduce options for publishing and using policy surveillance data
- Understand the steps involved in tracking and updating the law
- Review the process for creating a longitudinal dataset
This webinar is hosted by expert training staff from the Policy Surveillance Program at Temple University’s Center for Public Health Law Research.
