Croatian Social Science Data Archive - CROSSDA

Visit website

The Croatian Social Science Data Archive (CROSSDA) is a national infrastructure public service whose role is to ensure the long-term preservation and dissemination of social science research data. CROSSDA is committed to providing data management support for researchers during the entire lifecycle of the project, from hypothesis development and grant preparation to data collection and data analysis. The data archive will make sure that the data are preserved and reusable in the long-term.

Croatia became a member of CESSDA ERIC in 2019 with the support of the Croatian Ministry of Science and Education. The data archive was established at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Zagreb, which serves as the national coordination centre for social science data curation.

Open access and open science policies which would require scientists to share and preserve their data are still being developed in Croatia. CROSSDA therefore also has an advocacy role for the introduction of such policies and offers the necessary infrastructure to support their implementation.
