With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, love is definitely in the air. And what could be a better opportunity to celebrate who, or what, you love? As open data is close to our heart at SND, we will join in the festivities of Love Data Week. This week is an initiative to raise awareness and discussion on topics related to data management, sharing, preservation, and reuse.
Our research data catalogue contains almost two thousand studies on diverse topics, many of which are freely accessible and just a click away. Here are some examples of open datasets that have become accessible in the past year:
- The SVT exit poll survey VALU 2018, where you can learn more about Swedish voters’ opinions in the latest Swedish general election, and perhaps find clues to the complex political situation that was the result of the election.
- What does the primary school student know about the map in 2013? – A study of the geography knowledge among primary school students in Arvika and how that has changed in 45 years.
- The Swedish part of ISSP 2017, an international comparative survey that, for the fourth time, focused on social networks and social resources.
- If you prefer animals to people, why not do some birdwatching on the arable lands of the Scania region, in the study Estimating effects of arable landuse intensity on farmland birds using joint species modelling.
You can find more open data in our research data catalogue. And remember: Sharing is caring!
Love Data Week is an international social media event where everyone interested and involved is encouraged to share practical tips and resources that can help researchers in their data management work. This event has been organised annually since 2016, and the theme for 2019 is ”Data in Everyday Life”.
