  Gateways into GaWC

This is the raison d'être of GaWC. For an introduction, see A Brief Guide to Quantitative Data Collection at GaWC, 1997-2001.

INVITATION

World city researchers with relational data on world cities are encouraged to post it here. Depositors may apply their own protocol for use by others. (Contact crogfam@yahoo.com)

PROTOCOL for using GaWC data

As part of our mission to promote the study of non-state relations we wish to encourage people to use the data posted here in their research and teaching. However, we do ask that, as a matter of courtesy bordering on ethics, the research project and the information gatherers are properly acknowledged along with GaWC itself. Each data set will have a statement as to whom to acknowledge and we ask that this be reproduced in every public use of the data.
