ICSSR Data Access Scheme for PhD Scholars

Applications are invited from PhD students in universities and colleges for one year access to EPWRF India Time Series (EPWRFITS) for use in their doctoral research. This is to promote Social Science Research through Online Time Series Data Services.

While every Indian Council for Social Science Research (ICSSR) institutes access EPWRFITS under a separate scheme, this scheme would enable wider access of PhD students outside the ICSSR institutes to the EPWRFITS. The scheme is expected to greatly help research scholars of universities and colleges, who do not have any easy access to such data.

This scheme has the following highlights:

  • (i) Up to 50 PhD scholars will be given access to the EPWRF India Time Series for one year
  • (ii) Access will be to students outside the ICSSR institutes
  • (iii) PhD scholars can request access to any 5 of the following modules of their choice.
