1 Raymond F. Currie, Ph.D., LL.D. Presentation at the 11 th Annual CRDCN Conference University of Waterloo October 4, 2013

2 Social Sciences in Canada in Context Introduction 1990, CSAA 25 th anniversary meeting Focus: relationship of disciplines to social policy Fragile Truths: 25 years of Sociology and Anthropology in Canada Bruce McFarlane Jim Harding Barbara Neis Ester Reiter Pat and Hugh Armstrong 2

3 Nature of Scholarship What does teaching, research, service mean? Innovation and Discovery (basic) Integration (inter-disciplinary) Application (service) Community-based research Community-based collaborative research Policy oriented research Knowledge mobilization vs. knowledge transfer Teaching (Ernest Boyer: Scholarship Reconsidered, 1990) 3

4 Changing Modes of Research (Michael Gibbons, 1994) Mode 1: Emphasis on individual Mode 2: Emphasis on teams Mode 1: Discipline based Mode 2: Problem issue based, transdisciplinary 4

5 Changing Modes (cont d) Mode 1: Local organization knowledge based Mode 2: Network based Mode 1: Academic control over research Mode 2: Research shaped by interaction of researchers and users 5

6 Changing Modes (cont d) Mode 1: Quality judged by peer review Mode 2: Quality control incorporating academic peer review and users (for social and economic impact) Individual science versus group science Eugene Rice Young Scholars Project wanting to improve society. 6

7 CIHR MRC to CIHR was a change from a passive granting agency to an active, strategic institute-driven organization (A. Bernstein) CIHR seeks integration of four areas Basic biomedical Clinical Research in health services and systems Research related to society, culture and health of populations Research and policy links Canadian Health Services Research Foundation 7

8 SSHRC From Granting Council to Knowledge Council to ensure that research findings actually make their way into the hands of policy makers. (CFHSS, Perspectives, No. 6, No. 3, April, 2003 Community/University Research Alliances (CURA, 1998) Research Data Centres, for analysis of longitudinal data Under umbrella of Canadian Initiative on Social Statistics (1998) 8

9 Initiation of Longitudinal Surveys National Public Health Survey (NPHS) 1992 The Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics (SLID, 1993) National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY, 1994) YOUTH In Transition Survey (YITS, 1998) Workplace and Employment Survey (WES, 1999) National Graduate Survey (NGS,1978) Longitudinal Survey of Immigrants to Canada (LSIC, 2001) 9

10 The Bernard Task Force (1998) The Advancement of Research Using Social Statistics As a nation we have very little capacity to conduct social policy research, evaluate social programs or monitor progress toward achieving social aims. Improve Data Access (Research Data Centres) Promote Research and Training Strengthen research-public policy links 10

11 Members of the Task Force Paul Bernard, U. of Montréal Céline Le Bourdais, INRS-Urbanisation Peter Kuhn, McMaster University Doug Norris, Statistics Canada Garnet Picot, Statistics Canada Martin Wilk, Statistics Canada Betty Havens, U of Manitoba Michael Ornstein, York University Doug Willms, U of New Brunswick 11

12 Summary of Key Network Achievements Increased Access to Data Increase in locations of Access Training of Next Generation of Researchers Development of Knowledge Transfer Activities With the assistance of Technology Development Consensus Decision-making Partnerships Interdisciplinary Approach Accountability Infrastructure International Outreach Contribution to National Data Archive 12

13 Key Network Achievements Increased access to data Social, economic and health data Longitudinal surveys Census data Administrative data Increase in locations of access Expansion of Research Data Centres across Canada 13

15 3500 Steady Growth in Research Activity Raw Dyads Adjusted Dyads 15

16 Training Next Generation of Researchers Training of both academics and students Summer workshops Seminars, workshops, conferences Courses Participation as assistants on projects Thesis, dissertation work Outcomes Academic positions Government positions Non-profit positions Industry positions 16

17 100% Share of Student and Non-student Dyads Over Time 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% Student Dyads Non-Student Dyads 17

18 Knowledge Transfer Activities Policy is rarely the direct application of research findings Role of values, belief, attitudes, ideology, budget Need for research seldom known in advance Culture of universities; knowledge transfer not high priority Obstacles specific to CRDCN No specific research agenda in CRDCN Social statistics not user friendly Decentralized nature of the Network Five year plan developed (S. Fortin) 18

19 Knowledge Transfer Activities (cont d) Annual CRDCN conferences (11 th annual) Conscious effort to involve policy makers in the program Poster presentations by students (H. Juby) Training in communication of research findings Presentations posted on website Knowledge Transfer Coordinator (2006) Heather Juby ( ); Sarah Fortin (2011-) Development of the national website (rdc-cdr.ca) 19

20 35000 Visitors to CRDCN Website

21 Knowledge Transfer Activities (cont d) Goal: a must website for those interested in public policy and social policy research (S. Fortin) Online bibliography (D. Haans) Linked by topic, researcher, year, data source, Centre 21

22 CRDCN Publications Total Publications M.A. & PhD Theses Report to Policy Group Working Papers Total

23 Knowledge Transfer Activities (cont d) Syntheses of research Research Highlights Webinar series The Networker Branding of CRDCN 23

24 Summary of Key Network Achievements Increased Access to Data Increase in locations of Access Training of Next Generation of Researchers Development of Knowledge Transfer Activities With the assistance of Technology Development Consensus Decision-making Partnerships Interdisciplinary Approach Accountability Infrastructure International Outreach Contribution to National Data Archive 24

25 Technology Development a light path virtual private network-wide Network (WAN) Special funding by CANARIE($300,000) Increase real time exchange of data and analysis Facilitate work of research teams across institutions Improve disclosure vetting and management of projects Enable new computational approaches to data analysis (virtualization servers, thin-client servers) 25

26 Technology Development Metadata Connect information throughout life cycle of data Improve research-planning search tools Allow life-cycle approach to research management Document researchers working files Capture researchers data experiences 26

27 Technology (cont d) DDI (Data Documentation Initiative) Uniqueness of the CRDCN contribution of DDI tool Social Science Data Archive No national archive Problem: SSHRC gave grant for recovery of census documentation Lead: Canadian Institute for Scientific and Technical Information (CISTI, a division of NRC) 27

28 Consensus Decision-making Model Faced and resolved complex issues Example: reward system Move from infrastructure to output 28

29 Measure and Weighting of Output for the Calendar Year Rating Units Total 0.5 Completed Projects 2.0 Books 1.0 Edited Book 1.0 Book Chapters 1.5 Refereed Articles 2.0 PhD Theses 1.0 Ma & Hon.

41 International Outreach Now 11 countries with Research Data Centres Canada, United States, Norway, Sweden, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Belgium, Japan, Switzerland, Holland Canada has the most elaborate Network We have presented papers on RDC issues in Canada, England, Wales, Germany, France, and Japan Exchange of data is the goal 41

42 New data sets More researchers Stable Funding More advanced technology Future Goals Internationalization (sharing of data) Stronger knowledge transfer More systematic data/analysis preservation Need to convince the Federal government of value of social science research for evidence-based decision making 42

43 Thank you to Academic Directors, Executive Director and his assistant, Chair of the Executive and partnering universities The researchers, who are using the Centres so effectively Statistics Canada SSHRC CIHR CFI CANARIE including Microdata Access Division (H.
