Data Access for the Social Sciences in Austria. Open Data, Closed Data, Research Infrastructures and Re-Use

Matthias Reiter-Pázmándy


Open science and open access to research data are important aspects of research policy in Austria. In the last years, the social sciences have seen the building of research infrastructures that generate data and archives that store data. Data standards have been established, several working groups exist and a number of activities aim to further develop various aspects of open science, open data and access to data. However, some barriers and challenges still exist in the practice of sharing research data. One aspect that should be emphasised and incentivised is the re-use of research data.
