NSDnews 1 2016 cover
NSDnews 2 2016 cover

Both editions of 2016 are now available in English.

The main topic of NSDnews 1/2016 is NORDi (Norwegian Open Research Data Infrastructure), a major NSD project aiming at rebuilding the infrastructure for research data in Norway on the basis of the Open Access principle, thus making it easier to find, use and share research data. A staff member from NSD's Privacy Protection Section also explains how the EU's new privacy protection decree will benefit researchers.

NSDnews 2/2016 focuses on the European Social Survey (ESS) and the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP), in both of which NSD is deeply involved. Furthermore, the head of NSD’s Section for Higher Education and Research Statistics presents open access as an academic publishing requirement.

NSD is the national archive for research data in Norway, providing data to researchers and students in Norway and abroad. It is also a resource centre assisting researchers with regard to data gathering, data analysis, and issues of methodology, privacy and research ethics.
