Life Cycle of and Open Access to Research Data in Finland

Presenter 1
Tuomas J. Alatera
Finnish Social Science Data Archive

The OECD recently published its guidelines for access to research data from public funding. Motivated by the OECD guidelines, Finnish Social Science Data Archive conducted an Internet survey on the preservation and reuse of research data, targeting humanities, social sciences and behavioural sciences. The aim of this survey was to chart how the universities in Finland have organised the depositing of digital research data and to what extent the data are reused by the scientific community after the original research has been completed. Views were also investigated on whether confidentiality or research ethics issues, or problems related to copyright or information technology formed barriers to data reuse.
