YouTube Researcher Program
YouTube is equipping researchers from around the world with data, tools, and support to advance the public’s understanding of our platform and its impact.
About the program
Eligible researchers from diverse disciplines can apply to use YouTube data to study a variety of topics. We’re starting this program offering participants the following:
Scaled access to YouTube’s public data corpus with as much quota as required for their research
Opportunity to derive insights from global YouTube data
Support and technical guidance from YouTube
We welcome feedback from participating researchers on the program as we continue to build out more products and tools over time.
