CESSDA SaW Case Study on Using Benefit and Cost Tools

Description: This case study from the Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD) on using cost and benefit tools is based on their experience of using some pre-existing tools. It examines how some existing benefit and cost tools can be used to determine the benefits of data archiving and the costs of this kind of research data infrastructure. It is intended to be used with other components of the CESSDA Saw Cost-Benefit Advocacy Toolkit to help you understand the approaches and tools available and to support your advocacy to funders and policymakers.
