The World Values Survey (WVS) is a worldwide network of social scientists studying changing values and their impact on social and political life. The WVS in collaboration with EVS (European Values Study) carried out representative national surveys in more than 100 countries containing almost 90 percent of the world's population. These surveys show pervasive changes in what people want out of life and what they believe. In order to monitor these changes, the EVS/WVS has executed six waves of surveys, from 1981 to 2013.
The Canadian Opinion Research Archive at Queen's University makes available commercial and independent surveys to the academic, research and journalistic communities. Founded in 1992, CORA contains hundreds of surveys including thousands of discrete items collected by major commercial Canadian firms dating back to the 1970s. CORA is continually adding new surveys and is always soliciting new data from commercial research firms, independent think tanks, research institutes, NGOs, and academic researchers. This website also includes readily accessible results from these surveys, tracking Canadian opinion over time on frequently asked survey questions, as well as tabular results from recent Canadian surveys, and more general information on polling. This material is made available as a public service by CORA and its partners.
The TRR228DB is the project-database of the Collaborative Research Centre 228 "Future Rural Africa: Future-making and social-ecological transformation" (CRC/Transregio 228, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG, German Research Foundation – Project number 328966760). The project-database is a new implementation of the TR32DB and online since 2018. It handles all data including metadata, which are created by the involved project participants from several institutions (e.g. Universities of Cologne and Bonn) and research fields (e.g. anthropology, agroeconomics, ecology, ethnology, geography, politics and soil sciences). The data is resulting from several field campaigns, interviews, surveys, remote sensing, laboratory studies and modelling approaches. Furthermore, outcomes of the scientists such as publications, conference contributions, PhD reports and corresponding images are collected.

The SND Search function makes it easy to find, use, and cite research data from a variety of scientific disciplines. Together with an extensive network of almost 40 Swedish higher education institutions and other research organisations, SND works for increased access to research data, nationally as well as internationally.
The Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD) is a national resource centre for social science research and teaching. FSD archives, promotes and disseminates digital research data for research, teaching and learning purposes. Data descriptions are published in Finnish and English on FSD’s service portal Aila Data Service, through which users also download data. Quantitative datasets are translated from Finnish into English on request, and a large number of datasets are available in English. All services are free of charge. FSD promotes transparency, accumulation and efficient reuse of scientific research as well as open access to research data. FSD is the Finnish Service Provider for CESSDA ERIC.
The Data Catalogue (DBK) comprises the study descriptions from all studies archived at the Data Archive including study descriptions of historical studies data. The primary focus of the department “Data Archive for the Social Sciences” is providing excellent data service for national and international comparative surveys from the fields of social and political science research. These surveys, which must comply with clearly defined methodological and technical requirements, are archived and processed according to internationally recognized standards and made accessible to the scientifically interested public in a user-friendly manner.
RODA is the national Romanian institution specialised in archiving electronic data collections obtained by social research. The archive contains data collections accessible for the academic community and the interested public, for secondary and comparative analysis, under certain access conditions ranging from free access to some level of restriction imposed by owners. The archive serves as an intermediary between the data owners and data users.
IDSC is IZA's organizational unit whose purpose is to serve the scientific and infrastructural computing needs of IZA and its affiliated communities. IDSC is dedicated to supporting all users of data from the novice researcher to the experienced data analyst. IDSC aims at becoming the place for economically minded technologists and technologically savvy economists looking for data support, data access support and data services about labor economics. IDSC is actively involved in organizing events (see our next Red Cube Seminar Talk) for data professionals, data analysts, and scientific data users and young researchers to discuss and share findings and to establish contacts for future cooperation.
The Minnesota Population Center (MPC) is a University-wide interdisciplinary cooperative for demographic research. The MPC serves more than 80 faculty members and research scientists from eight colleges and institutes at the University of Minnesota. As a leading developer and disseminator of demographic data, we also serve a broader audience of some 50,000 demographic researchers worldwide. MPC is a DataONE member node:
Numerous studies on gender relations and gender equality policy in academia regularly produce research data that could be useful for a secondary analysis and for other research topics. At present, only a small amount of research data that was explicitly collected on gender relations in academia is archived. Long-term surveys such as graduate studies or social surveys on students are also available to be used in gender-specific studies. CEWS would like to support researchers in their search for research data and at the same time motivate them to archive data from their own projects and thus make them accessible to other researchers by providing search options at GESIS and other data-providing institutions as well as basic information on data archiving.
CISER houses an extensive collection of research data files in the social sciences with particular emphasis on data that matches the interests of Cornell University researchers. CISER intentionally uses a broad definition of social sciences in recognition of the interdisciplinary nature of Cornell research. CISER collects and maintains digital research data files in the social sciences, with a current emphasis on Cornell-based social science research, Results Reproduction packages, and potentially at-risk datasets. Our archive historically has focused on a broad range of social science data including data on demography, economics and labor, political and social behavior, family life, and health.

The DesignSafe Data Depot Repository (DDR) is the platform for curation and publication of datasets generated in the course of natural hazards research. The DDR is an open access data repository that enables data producers to safely store, share, organize, and describe research data, towards permanent publication, distribution, and impact evaluation. The DDR allows data consumers to discover, search for, access, and reuse published data in an effort to accelerate research discovery. It is a component of the DesignSafe cyberinfrastructure, which represents a comprehensive research environment that provides cloud-based tools to manage, analyze, curate, and publish critical data for research to understand the impacts of natural hazards. DesignSafe is part of the NSF-supported Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI), and aligns with its mission to provide the natural hazards research community with open access, shared-use scholarship, education, and community resources aimed at supporting civil and social infrastructure prior to, during, and following natural disasters. It serves a broad national and international audience of natural hazard researchers (both engineers and social scientists), students, practitioners, policy makers, as well as the general public. It has been in operation since 2016, and also provides access to legacy data dating from about 2005. These legacy data were generated as part of the NSF-supported Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES), a predecessor to NHERI. Legacy data and metadata belonging to NEES were transferred to the DDR for continuous preservation and access.
