The research data in the social, educational, behavioral and economic sciences are distributed decentrally in the research data centers (RDC). In order to make them accessible to researchers, many FDZ ensure that they can be found by da|ra, the registration agency for social and economic data.
Networking and exchange of research data centers
KonsortSWD continues the Committee for Data Access, which for more than ten years has been the basis for the outstanding position of the social, educational, behavioral and economic sciences with regard to research data. Here, representatives of the FDZ can exchange best practices and coordinate access to research data despite highly diverse framework conditions.
