Japan Society for the Promotion of Science

The aim of this program is to build a comprehensive system for researchers to use in sharing data on research across the humanities and social sciences. The Japan Data Catalog for the Humanities and Social Sciences (JDCat) was created as a component of this program. It facilitates access to humanities and social sciences data provided by research institutes participating in this program . JDCat compiles metadata (e.g., information on authors and time periods) provided by these research institutes. An English version of the Catalog is also available. (Some metadata are omitted.)
