The Data

As a part of the Digital Ecologies Research Partnership (DERP), Internet communities such as Imgur, Reddit and Stack Exchange share public user data with a select group of academic institutions to support research on Internet social behavior.

How the data was shared

For contributing organizations, most of the data was otherwise available via public APIs.

Purpose of Data Shared

DERP is a single point of contact for researchers to get in touch with relevant team members across a range of different community sites. They envision that this will lower the friction to investigating these sites in more depth, and broaden the scope of research happening within the academic community.
