Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives

Swedish National Data Service - SND



SND provides support and guidance to researchers throughout the whole research process. This Swedish node in an international network of data archives is an essential part of the research infrastructure. Part of SND’s mission is to gain a very good overview of existing research databases and to endeavour to gain full knowledge of future databases within the Social Sciences, Humanities and Health Sciences.

Our main task is to take stock of databases relevant to research as well as support archiving, usage and re-usage of databases and related research materials on a national level within SND’s fields of responsibility.


SND organises researcher workshops for researchers/postgraduates and discussion forums on research data. Our Data Management web resources feature advice on managing data over the lifespan of a 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).
