ISQ Blog

Earlier today I posted on ISQ policy surrounding the Global Database of Events, Language, and Tone (GDELT)

Due to concerns surrounding GDELT, we had decided that the prudent course of action was to "unsubmit" such manuscripts without prejudice. In the interests of transparency, I thought it best to publicly disclose the policy rather than take individual scholars by surprise. 

The post prompted a number of email and phone exchanges on the subject. The gist is that any firm policy requires further investigation. But unless and until we receive dispositive official communication, we will treat articles using GDELT like any other submissions. Such papers will be subject to any and all rules related to replication data as enacted by the ISA. 

Email us if you have any questions.
