The DRH is a quantitative and qualitative encyclopedia of religious history. It consists of a variety of entry types including religious group and religious place. Scholars contribute entries on their area of expertise by answering questions in standardised polls. Answers are initially coded in the binary format Yes/No or categorically, with comment boxes for qualitative comments, references and links. Experts are able to answer both Yes and No to the same question, enabling nuanced answers for specific circumstances. Media, such as photos, can also be attached to either individual questions or whole entries. The DRH captures scholarly disagreement, through fine-grained records and multiple temporally and spatially overlapping entries. Users can visualise changes in answers to questions over time and the extent of scholarly consensus or disagreement.

Our lab investigates how cognition manifests in, and is influenced by, the social contexts in which it occurs. We focus: 1) on how conversational interactions can reshape memory, by promoting shared remembering and shared forgetting, and 2) on how socio-cognitive processes affect the formation of collective memories and beliefs, and the dynamics of collective decisions. In exploring these issues, while maintaining high ecological validity, our lab integrates a wide range of methodologies, including laboratory experiments, field studies, social network analysis, and agent-based simulations.
KONECT (the Koblenz Network Collection) is a project to collect large network datasets of all types in order to perform research in network science and related fields, collected by the Institute of Web Science and Technologies at the University of Koblenz–Landau. KONECT contains over a hundred network datasets of various types, including directed, undirected, bipartite, weighted, unweighted, signed and rating networks. The networks of KONECT are collected from many diverse areas such as social networks, hyperlink networks, authorship networks, physical networks, interaction networks and communication networks. The KONECT project has developed network analysis tools which are used to compute network statistics, to draw plots and to implement various link prediction algorithms. The result of these analyses are presented on these pages. Whenever we are allowed to do so, we provide a download of the networks.
The Centre conducts real-time data collection on all ongoing and incoming General and Assembly Elections, and diffuses data-driven analysis through print and electronic media. The coverage includes the analysis, contextualization, and visualisation of results and the profiling of main parties candidates. For each election, we assemble a team of field researchers and scholars to complete and expand existing data. Besides the ECI results data, we collect information on the socio-demographic profile of main parties’ candidates and on the sociological profile of constituencies.
The HMAP Data Pages are a research resource comprising of information derived largely from historical records relating to fishing catches and effort in selected spatial and temporal contexts. The History of Marine Animal Populations (HMAP), the historical component of the Census of Marine Life, aimed to improve our understanding of ecosystem dynamics, specifically with regard to long-term changes in stock abundance, the ecological impact of large-scale harvesting by man, and the role of marine resources in the historical development of human society. HMAP data is also accessible through the Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS):, see also:

You will find in the Access to Archival Databases (AAD) resource online access to records in a small selection of historic databases preserved permanently in NARA. Out of the nearly 200,000 data files in its holdings, NARA has selected approximately 475 of them for public searching through AAD. We selected these data because the records identify specific persons, geographic areas, organizations, and dates. The records cover a wide variety of civilian and military functions and have many genealogical, social, political, and economic research uses. AAD provides: Access to over 85 million historic electronic records created by more than 30 agencies of the U.S. federal government and from collections of donated historical materials. Both free-text and fielded searching options. The ability to retrieve, print, and download records with the specific information that you seek. Information to help you find and understand the records.
The Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) is an open consortium of universities, libraries, corporations and government research laboratories. It was formed in 1992 to address the critical data shortage then facing language technology research and development. Initially, LDC's primary role was as a repository and distribution point for language resources. Since that time, and with the help of its members, LDC has grown into an organization that creates and distributes a wide array of language resources. LDC also supports sponsored research programs and language-based technology evaluations by providing resources and contributing organizational expertise. LDC is hosted by the University of Pennsylvania and is a center within the University’s School of Arts and Sciences.
Cell phones have become an important platform for the understanding of social dynamics and influence, because of their pervasiveness, sensing capabilities, and computational power. Many applications have emerged in recent years in mobile health, mobile banking, location based services, media democracy, and social movements. With these new capabilities, we can potentially be able to identify exact points and times of infection for diseases, determine who most influences us to gain weight or become healthier, know exactly how information flows among employees and productivity emerges in our work spaces, and understand how rumors spread. In an attempt to address these challenges, we release several mobile data sets here in "Reality Commons" that contain the dynamics of several communities of about 100 people each. We invite researchers to propose and submit their own applications of the data to demonstrate the scientific and business values of these data sets, suggest how to meaningfully extend these experiments to larger populations, and develop the math that fits agent-based models or systems dynamics models to larger populations. These data sets were collected with tools developed in the MIT Human Dynamics Lab and are now available as open source projects or at cost.

The speaking language atlas gives a multimedia impression of the dialects of the state Baden-Württemberg in Germany. The maps of the Speaking Language Atlas of Baden-Württemberg are based on two databases: Südwestdeutschen Sprachatlas (SSA) and the Sprachatlas von Nord Baden-Württemberg (SNBW). The dialect recordings that form the basis for the maps were carried out at the SSA between 1974 and 1986, but at the SNBW between 2009 and 2012. For the southern part, this means that the maps may present a state of affairs that is no longer valid today.
