The goal of the documentation and dissemination group is to provide minimum guidelines for process and study documentation in cross-national survey research projects. Such documentation must be sufficiently detailed to allow replicability. Preparing this level of documentation can be a labor intensive endeavor. Therefore, a secondary goal of the group is to provide templates and programs that facilitate the documentation process throughout the survey design, implementation and data processing steps.
