Cost-Benefit Advocacy Toolkit

This toolkit is comprised of:

In addition, the toolkit describes and links to a number of pre-existing external tools and relevant studies. There is also a mapping of the other toolkit components onto the Archive Development Canvas.

The toolkit has been developed for its primary audience of staff in existing or proposed national social science archives in Europe. However we expect the toolkit may be of interest to other audiences even if it is not specifically tailored and adapted for them. The major use for the toolkit will be supporting funding and business cases but elements are likely to be relevant in advocacy to other groups or in supporting broader operational tasks.

Creative Commons licensing is intended to allow you to easily re-use locally any material from the factsheets, case studies, or worksheets in the toolkit.

The detailed description of how the toolkit was developed is reported in the D4.9 Cost-Benefit Advocacy Toolkit Deliverable Report. The development of the toolkit was led by Charles Beagrie Ltd, with support from the Slovenian Social Science Data Archive (ADP), the Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD), the Lithuanian Social Science Data Archive (LiDA), the University of Tartu in Estonia (UTARTU), and the UK Data Service (UKDS).
