Swedish National Data Service - SND

Together with a network of around 40 universities and public research institutes, Swedish National Data Service (SND) form a national infrastructure for open access to research data. By encouraging and facilitating open science, we contribute to making research more accessible, useful, and transparent. This will create better conditions for future research, and benefit the public and society as a whole.

At SND, metadata and research data can be described and made accessible through the system DORIS, and published in our research data catalogue. Published data can be reused globally for secondary analyses, new research, feasibility studies, reviews of research results, and education. The main principle is for research data to be as open as possible, and as protected as necessary.


SND organises workshops for researchers/postgraduates and discussion forums on open science, research data and research data management. Our data management web resources feature advice on managing data over the lifespan of a research project. “BAS Online” is our online course on data management with a primary target audience of data access units at Swedish universities.

Find out more about training on our local website (in Swedish).
