Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD)

The FSD focuses on acquiring social science data. Under certain circumstances, data from other relevant fields (Arts and Humanities, Education, and health sciences) can also be archived. Datasets deposited at the archive must meet certain technical and legal requirements. Before dissemination, archived datasets are processed and documented.

FSD promotes open access to research data as well as transparency, accumulation and efficient reuse of scientific research. FSD also responsibly implements the FAIR data principles, which aim at making data and services Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable.

The archive is a national resource centre funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture and the University of Tampere. In addition to archiving and dissemination of data, key services include data-related information services and support for research data management. The archive operates as a separate unit of the University of Tampere.
