Finnish Social Science Data Archive - FSD



The Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD) is a national resource centre providing a single point of access to a wide range of digital research data for learning, teaching and research purposes. The FSD promotes open access to research data as well as transparency, accumulation and efficient reuse of scientific research and is the first organisation in Finland to have been awarded the Data Seal of Approval (DSA).

FSD is a separate unit in the University of Tampere and is also financially supported by the Academy of Finland through project funding to research infrastructures.
