Data Provenance, Evidence-Based Policy Assessment, and e-Social Science

Abstract

This paper considers how the concept of data provenance, developed in e-Science, can be applied to e-Social Science, specifically Evidence Based Policy Assessment. It considers what Evidence Based Policy Assessment is and what types of information can be used in such research. Quantitative and qualitative data and analytical/ interpretative approaches are outlined and the implications of these for the development of a provenance architecture/ model for Evidence Based Policy Assessment are suggested. The schema for the implementation of an e-based provenance system, work undertaken as part of the wider PolicyGrid project, is outlined. The paper concludes by offering thoughts on the contributions that the application of data provenance concepts to Evidence Based Policy Assessment can make.
