Building an Open Qualitative Science

The Russell Sage Foundation is soliciting proposals from researchers interested in using American Voices Project data (AVP). The AVP is the country’s first platform for conducting qualitative interviews with a nationally representative sample. We welcome research on the many topics—including health, poverty, politics, protest, employment, coping, and anomie—that AVP interviews can assist in understanding. Although most issues of RSF are topically focused, this issue will be topically broad and is instead unified by a commitment to exploring the hopefully broad payoff to this new form of qualitative data collection. Proposals are due by January 5, 2022. Questions regarding this issue should be directed to Suzanne Nichols, Director of Publications, at
