Abstract

The paper is based on a keynote talk held at the international conference “Opening data services in the social sciences”, Belgrade, Serbia, 20/21 March 2013.

Empirical social sciences strongly contribute towards a better understanding of societies, especially of those societies that undergo rapid social changes. Empirical analyses are fed into the steering processes that are shaping a Europe of Nations. But data are also essential for the support of social and economic developments in national contexts. I was asked to reflect on three questions in my talk, namely:

Why should we share our data?

How can data sharing be organized?

And what are the challenges ahead?

Keywords: research data, RatSWD, data sharing, data mangement, empirical research, research data centre, research infrastructure
