Deposit your research data
Sikt archives research data on people and society to make them accessible for reuse. We will assist you with documenting your research data and choosing the right access conditions. We make sure that the data are safeguarded and accessible for at least 10 years.
Sikt’s main focus is quantitative data matrices on individuals, organisations, administrative, political, and geographical actors.
How to deposit and share your research data
- Sikt’s archive is responsible at a national level for archiving and sharing data from the social sciences, humanities, and parts of medical and health research.
- We can archive all types of digital research data, including data that requires special handling or permissions, such as personal data.
- Data should be shared as openly as possible, and as closed as necessary. That means data can't have more restrictive usage and access conditions than necessary.
