 What's new?


"Big Data" is a buzzword in business and politics, and a new challenge for social sciences. One AUSSDA will tackle head on, by intensifying cooperation with the "Wearables"-project of Professor Batinic. Together with his team, AUSSDA develops new tools and services fit to archive "Big Data".


AUSSDA develops various documents and processes but our work centres on the repository solution. With Dataverse, archiving and reuse are quick and easy.


A successful project to strengthen and widen the infrastructure of social science data archives in the European Research Area is coming to a close.


Last week‘s PUMA symposium focussed on the topic of random samples and whether they still act as the gold standard of empirical research. Members of the AUSSDA-team were there to discuss.


New types of data are not only a challenge for researchers but also for data archives. Members of CESSDA ERIC discussed this and more in Bergen, Norway.


The AUSSDA team is growing. Help us shape the social science research landscape of Austria by contributing your expertise and leadership skills!
