An important responsibility of researchers is the distribution of data and other research materials to the scholarly community at large. When researchers distribute their data, other scholars can either replicate their work or address additional research questions not studied by the original data collectors. In short, the entire scholarly community benefits.

This page used to be the data archive for the Issue Correlates of War (ICOW) Project, where all of the project's data sets were described and made available for download. As the project has released more and more data, though, this has been replaced by separate pages for each data set, linked below. This page also used to include links to non-ICOW data that Paul Hensel had made available (such as replication data); those links have now been moved to my curriculum vitae.
