New UKDA web site coming soon

Article dated: 25-May-05

The UKDA will soon be releasing its new web site. The URL will be the same,, but users should find a more modern look and a more intuitive navigation system. The new UKDA web site will be officially launched on 20 June 2005 at Social Science Week, after several months of development work and usability testing. Users of UKDA online facilities should find the process easier and more streamlined with improved integration between the UKDA and the service it provides for ESDS.

The new UKDA web site will be made live on the afternoon of 6 June 2005. Changes to the site may be noticeable between then and the official launch on 20 June. Web pages may need to be refreshed.
