Overview

The Anxieties of Democracy program is collaborating with the ITHAKA Labs team at JSTOR, the eminent digital library of academic journals, books, and primary sources, to create a working prototype of a digital tool for social scientists studying democratic institutions and political participation. Currently in active development following a “design jam” organized at Harvard in collaboration with Dataverse, this “workbench” will be an online, searchable hub of scholarly research on the topic of democracy. By helping to facilitate its creation, the Anxieties of Democracy program seeks to make quality social science research more accessible to democracy scholars of all ages and backgrounds.
