You can find the majority of search options under the tab. You can search by keyword, subject, investigator, or study number/name. If you don't know what you're searching for exactly, you can always browse under the following options:
- Browse by topic
- Browse by series
- Browse by geography
- Browse by investigator
- Browse international data
You can also browse all studies, studies that allow for online analysis (rather than downloading the study to SAS, SPSS, or other statistical software), studies that allow other researchers to "replicate" the study for their own research outcomes (including publications) and those studies that have learning guides for instruction attached.
- View all studies
Finally, you can browse by thematic collections included in ICPSR. These include The Health and Medican Care Archive, CrimeStat, and NCAA Student-Athlete Experiences Data Archive among others.

In these cases, ICPSR provides access to restricted use versions that retain confidential data by imposing stringent requirements for accessing them. (more)
