Published papers which expand the frontiers of knowledge in microdata methods and practice.

The Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice (cemmap) is a joint venture by the Department of Economics University College London and the Institute for Fiscal Studies. It develops and applies methods for modelling individual behaviour, the influences on it and the impact of policy interventions.

Taxonomy and classification

We worked with the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) to develop a new website for cemmap. The audience for the site is primarily academic researchers and students but additionally serves policy makers and civil servants. The site provides information about cemmap staff, fellows and associates, it lists events and workshops and acts as a repository for publications. The site required flexible content tagging and presentation based on author and content type and following a workshop with the IFS team consideration was given to taxonomy and classification.


Digital Object Identifiers

Published papers are associated with a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) provided by Crossref and a solution was developed to integrate WordPress with the Crossref API. Content is managed across partner organisations and by non-technical staff and we provided the ability to grant editors granular permissions.

The site is built on WordPress.
