Excerpt from Research Project: Datasets focusing on temporal domains before 1815.

As part of a Rapid Evidence Assessment Project I am conducting (waiting professional editing to be sent out for review) I collected in one point information on all the conflict-political science Data-sets containing data that extends before 1815. A pared down version of this collection can be found in the a table below. The REA was produced by looking at articles from three quantitative friendly international relations conflict journals between 1970 and 2014. This might be a useful resource for scholars wondering what data is out there that looks to the past. For more information you will have to wait for the published article.


In the REA I looks at what variables tend to be used in the literature, what their findings are, and also explore some other questions. But one of the main goals is to familiarize the newer generations of researchers with these older datasets.
