The National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect is accepting applications for its 2013 Summer Research Institute (SRI). This is the final reminder regarding next week's January 30th, 2013 application deadline. This message contains 1. the 2013 Summer Research Institute Announcement, including the link for downloading the official Application 2. the text of the application for reference* *Applicants are to submit, via e-mail attachment, their CV along with the official Application (MS Word Format) which is available for download at this link: http://www.ndacan.cornell.edu/Ndacan/Summer_Institute/SRI2013.html --------------- Summer Research Institute (SRI) Cornell University, June 10-14, 2013 Announcement The National Data Archive on Child Abuse and Neglect (NDACAN) will sponsor its 21st Summer Research Institute (SRI) for child maltreatment researchers on the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, New York on June 10-14, 2013. The Institute will be an intensive experience in secondary data analysis that combines colloquia with hands-on computing time. Participants are selected on a competitive basis from a variety of disciplines including psychology, social work, and medicine. The primary goal of the Institute is to facilitate secondary analysis projects from which researchers can publish their findings. In addition, the Institute will provide child maltreatment researchers an invaluable opportunity for networking and collaboration. OVERVIEW OF INSTITUTE ACTIVITIES The NDACAN Summer Research Institute (SRI) promotes the use of Archive datasets and encourages publication of research findings. Prior to the Institute, each participant begins a secondary analysis project on an NDACAN dataset. During the Institute, participants refine their analysis plans and resolve technical problems with the NDACAN staff as well as with computing and statistical consultants. Analysis support is provided by the NDACAN staff and members of the Cornell faculty. During the week there is one presentation on research methodology, statistics, secondary analysis, or data management, but the Institute consists primarily of unstructured, self-guided computing sessions for hands-on work with the datasets. Participants do brief presentations of their current research with Archive data and receive feedback from the other participants. The expectation is that each participant's work will result in a conference paper, journal article, or other publication. SCHEDULE AND ACCOMMODATIONS The Institute will begin on Monday evening (6/10) with an opening orientation/dinner and will conclude at 1PM on Friday (6/14). Presentations and computing sessions will be held Tuesday through Friday. Participants will stay in private rooms at the Cornell University Statler Hotel for four nights. The Archive pays for the hotel room (4 nights and parking) and most meals; Participants are responsible for their travel expenses, two dinners, and any hotel extras (e.g. room service, early departure fee, late check-out fee). Please see this Sample Agenda and contact the Archive with any questions. DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS NDACAN is offering three scholarships to cover the domestic travel fares for two minority participants and one graduate student. It is hoped that these scholarships will promote a diverse array of applicants who would otherwise be unable to attend the Institute. SELECTION OF PARTICIPANTS The Archive encourages applications from advanced graduate students, post-docs, faculty, and other researchers. Applicants are rated based on the quality of their proposal, their research background, and the intention to publish their findings. In addition to these criteria, applicants are selected in order to achieve some balance of datasets being represented. The Archive will give preference to researchers who have obtained and examined their intended dataset from our datasets list prior to applying to the Institute. The SRI supports participants working with LONGSCAN, AFCARS, NCANDS, NIS, NSCAW, or datasets #162, #159, #135, #134, #126, #117, #112, #110, #100. If you want to use a different dataset than these, please contact NDACANSupport@cornell.edu before applying so that we can advise you regarding its suitability to the event. The Archive will accept 12-15 applicants. The electronic application may be downloaded from the NDACAN Web site . Applications must be received on or before January 30, 2013. Applicants will be notified of acceptance status in February.
