Abstract (English):This compendium is published in two volumes divided into three main parts. The first part presents the German Data Forum’s recommendations on the further development of the research infrastructure for the social, economic, and behavioral sciences. The second part of this publication, also contained in the first volume, provides “executive summaries” of all of the advisory reports, including detailed recommendations on how to meet current and future data needs. The summaries serve to provide the reader with a compact overview of current issues and needs in each research field. The third part is comprised of the 68 advisory reports commissioned by the German Data Forum and makes up by far the largest section of this final volume. The advisory reports cover a wide range of fields in the social, economic, and behavioral sciences: economics, sociology, psychology, educational science, political science, geoscience, and communications and media research. Some reports focus mainly on substantive issues, some on survey methodology and issues of data linkage, some on ethical and legal issues, and others on the assurance of quality standards. The third part begins with the assessment reports that address future demands likely to be placed on Germany’s research infrastructure as well as the progress made since the first KVI report of 2001. One of the main topics dealt with here is the harmonization of European research infrastructures and possibilities for the permanent institutionalization of certain elements thereof. These are followed by reports on specific research fields, and on new data types and their potential applications in scientific research – for example, geodata, biodata, and transaction data. Many of these reports highlight recent advances in research methodology, such as the use of paradata (“data about data”) and, for example, “qualitative methods” that can enrich quantitative data. Others are concerned with questions of data security and research ethics. Further reports deal with specific fields: migration and demography; vocational competencies, education, and research; labor markets and the economy; the state, the family, and health; political and cultural participation; and the role of the media. Since these have been identified as crucial research fields for research infrastructure, key aspects of each are discussed in several advisory reports. (DIPF/Orig.)
