The Leibniz Institute for Psychology Information (ZPID) a partner in the Covid-19 Snapshot Monitoring (COSMO) Project will present an overview of how COSMO monitors public perceptions of risk, behaviours, and public trust during the Pandemic. The resulting information is meant to enable government spokespeople, health organisations and the media to offer helpful knowledge to the public, and combat misinformation.
The platform for the publication of the national study protocols, research data, and analysis code is PsychArchives, the DSpace-based repository at ZPID. Peter Weiland, Research Associate in the Digital Research Development Services, will show how DSpace enabled The COSMO Project to implement a clear information structure in a very short time without introducing many changes to the source code. The presenter will also address the workarounds implemented because DSpace doesn’t support certain processes that were needed for the project.
