The Czech Social Science Data Archive - CSDA

The Czech Social Science Data Archive (CSDA) was established in 1998 in response to a long-term demand from Czech social science researchers.

Currently CSDA serves as a national resource centre for social science research, which acquires, processes, documents, archives, and preserves digital datasets from Czech and international social research and makes these data publicly available. It is also the Czech node within the pan-European distributed research infrastructure CESSDA and the CESSDA Service Provider in the Czech Republic. CSDA is also active in the CESSDA Training Working Group.
