The UK's largest collection of digital research data in the social sciences and humanities

Collaboration and networks

Our trusted global reputation means we are frequently asked to advise and collaborate at a national and international level on data governance, ethics and confidentiality.

We are the national organisation responsible for acquiring, curating and providing access to social science data across the UK.  Our expertise focuses more specifically around Research Data Management and the re-use of data for research, whilst other national organisations in the UK provide stronger statistical expertise.

The Office for National Statistics are the UK's largest independent producer of official statistics and the recognised national statistical institute of the UK. The UK Statistics Authority have a statutory objective of promoting and safeguarding the production and publication of official statistics that ‘serve the public good’. 

If you have a specific project that may benefit from expertise in the UK Data Archive or are interested in collaborating, please contact us.
