SowiDataNet|datorium is a research data repository for the fields of social sciences and economics. It enables researchers to share quantitative primary and secondary data easily and securely. The research data can be described in detail using a comprehensive metadata diagram. The research data receive a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) when published. A review process ensures that the data is quality-checked technically and in terms of content. A selection of access classes and Creative Commons licences makes it possible for the person providing the data to define the conditions for gaining access to their data themselves. SowiDataNet|datorium offers convenient search functions for searching for research data.
SowiDataNet|datorium is operated by GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences. It is based, among other things, on the SowiDataNet project, which was implemented in partnership with the German Institute for Economic Research (Deutsches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung / DIW Berlin), the Berlin Social Science Center (Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin für Sozialforschung / WZB) and the ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics.
