Qualitative Data Archiving in Switzerland

Brian Kleiner, Claudia Heinzmann, Thomas S. Eberle & Manfred Max Bergman

abstract At the time of the Bremen workshop in 2009, there was no Swiss institution responsible for archiving qualitative social science data collected in
Switzerland. Since that time, the Swiss institution FORS (Swiss Centre of Expertise in the Social Sciences) has assumed this role, with development of the infrastructure, policy, and know-how needed for implementation. The archiving of qualitative data at FORS is now moving forward in close collaboration with Swiss universities with
established and strong qualitative research tr aditions. Over time, the success of qualitative data archiving at FORS will require the support of research funding institutions and policymakers, enhanced educational initiatives at universities,
promotion of the value and potential of secondary data analysis, and a well-equipped and staffed archive that serves also as a network node and resource centre.
