Research Data Center IDSC

The Research Data Center of IZA (IDSC) provides support for researchers in order to facilitate data access. Our services comprise support and development of tools for secure remote analysis of sensitive datasets as well as storage and provision of datasets for replication and secondary analysis. We also help to establish standards for dataset citation. Our scientific agenda is focused on internet data research.

The IDSC is a Research Data Center accredited by the German Council for Social and Economic Data (RatSWD) and follows the RatSWD's criteria for research data centers in the fulfilment of its tasks. As a member of the Economic and Social Sciences going FAIR Implementation Network (EcoSoc) the IDSC advocates FAIR principles in the social and economic data centers (i.e. data should be F(indable), A(ccessible), I(nteroperable) and R(eusable)).
