Researcher
Engagement

At Google, strong relationships with universities and research institutions are in our DNA. To cultivate these collaborations, we administer a variety of programs that provide resources and support to the academic and external research communities. We provide data, tools and publications to researchers, have researcher programs that selected researchers may apply to as well as deliver a number of outreach initiatives.

Data, Tools and Publications

Google makes available a wide variety of data, publications, and tools to researchers studying digital safety and risks online.

Internet Safety Data, Tools and
Publications for Researchers

Google Transparency Report

On the Google Transparency Report website, we share reports and data that shed light on how the policies and actions of governments and corporations affect privacy, security, and access to information. These include government requests to remove content, requests to delist content under European privacy law, content delistings due to copyright and the VLOSE/VLOP Transparency Report under the European Union Digital Services Act (EU DSA)

Other Data, Tools and Publications for Researchers

Google Research Resources

We make tools and datasets available to the broader research community with the goal of building a more collaborative ecosystem.

Google Trends

Google Trends lets you explore what the world is searching for.

Gain insights into search patterns, all the way from 2004 and up until three minutes ago (real time). Researchers can use this data to measure search interest in a particular topic, in a particular place, and at a particular time. To apply for access to the Google Trends API as a Researcher, please fill the form here.

Dataset Search

Dataset Search is a search engine for data sets. Using a simple keyword search, users can discover data sets hosted in thousands of repositories across the web. As more dataset repositories use schema.org and similar standards to describe their datasets, the variety and coverage of datasets that users find in Dataset Search will continue to grow.

Google Fact Check Tools

The Fact Check Tools consist of two tools: Fact Check Explorer and Fact Check Markup Tool. Both tools aim to facilitate the work of fact checkers, journalists and researchers

Data Commons

Data Commons aims to organize all the world's public data and make it universally accessible and useful. Data Commons synthesizes a single graph from different data sources. It links references to the same entities (such as cities, counties, organizations, etc.) across different datasets to nodes on the graph, so that users can access data about a particular entity aggregated from different sources without data cleaning or joining. We hope the data contained within Data Commons will be useful to students, researchers, and enthusiasts across different disciplines.

Google Scholar

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. Anyone can search across a wide variety of disciplines and sources and researchers can also make profiles showing their own work.

Other Researcher Programs

YouTube Researcher Program

YouTube is equipping eligible academic researchers from around the world with data, tools, and support to advance the public’s understanding of YouTube’s platform and its impact.

Outreach

We administer a variety of outreach programs that provide support to the academic and external research communities

Awards

Events

We have Google teams working across privacy, security, content responsibility, and family safety around the world. Our Google Safety Engineering Centers in Munich, Dublin, and Málaga help guide this Internet safety work, led by experienced teams of engineers, policy specialists and subject matter experts. Through our network of centers, we collaborate and share this work with researchers, policymakers and regulators.

Part of this work includes holding regular events for these audiences on topics such as Security and Child Safety  [e.g. photos]

Specifically for researchers, we also organize events focused on having our researchers collaborate with the academic community like our workshop on At-Risk Users and our AI Research Day in France, which focused entirely on AI Privacy, Safety and Security research.
