Description

About the event

This workshop will introduce delegates to CLOSER’s range of longitudinal resources and highlight opportunities for life course and intergenerational research. The session will cover the following:

- CLOSER Learning Hub demonstration

- CLOSER Discovery demonstration

- CLOSER’s work on data harmonisation and linkage

This workshop is suitable for researchers from across disciplines and career stages who are using data currently or considering using data from the CLOSER longitudinal studies.


CLOSER Learning Hub demonstration

The first part of this session will introduce the CLOSER Learning Hub, a new online teaching resource aimed at a non-expert and interdisciplinary audience.


CLOSER Discovery demonstration

www.discovery.closer.ac.uk

The second part of this session will be a demonstration of CLOSER Discovery, an innovative new search engine that enables researchers to explore the content of eight leading UK longitudinal studies. It is the most detailed and sophisticated search tool of its kind.


Harmonising and linking data

In addition to making longitudinal data more discoverable, CLOSER is working to enhance the data for research purposes. It has focused on harmonising commonly used measures within and across studies, as well as facilitating linkage of study data to administrative records. This short session will provide a brief overview of CLOSER’s work in these areas, including forthcoming harmonised datasets to be deposited at the UK Data Service, and current and planned linkages.
