Similar to Open Access Week, the purpose of the Love Your Data (LYD) campaign is to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, reuse, and library-based research data services. UKDS will share practical tips, resources, and stories to help researchers at any stage in their career use good data practices.
In light of the event CESDDA would like to highlight the network of social science data archives across the world.
