GESIS data services have a new look - Helping you make your data FAIR

The GESIS data services are now available in a new, clearer web offering!

The new Data Services for the Social Sciences (DSS) department of GESIS continues to promote FAIR data, Open Science, and reproducible research in the quantitative social sciences.

It is committed to ensuring that data sets remain usable and interpretable over the long term, even as technology or the needs of the research community change.

The scientific foundation for this is the field around research data management that the department is further professionalising. This flows into easier and user-friendly access to research data and into sustainable and target group-oriented services.

The data services are now available in a new, clearer web offering.

They include advice, training and service packages on all legal, technical and organisational aspects of research data management (FDM) - from design to post-use.

  • Get advice and training in all areas of research data management (virtually or on-site) and tailored to your needs.
  • Our new "How to Guide" informs you about the procedure for publishing your data via GESIS.
  • Our proven data service packages Archiving BASIS, PLUS or PREMIUM help you share your data.

But it's not just your data, a large collection of more than 6,500 individual data sets are user-friendly and securely accessible for re-analysis. Sensitive data can be analysed via the Secure Data Center.

The da|ra data registration agency supports easy retrieval, re-analysis, and citation of your data by assigning Digital Object Identifiers (DOI).
