AUSSDA supports the life cycle of data from the social sciences. In addition to trainings in research data management, the archive curates datasets for secondary usage and provides access to numerous datasets like Austrian census data, COVID-19 datasets, election studies, social surveys and many more. In this contribution, open challenges in data sharing practices in the social sciences are discussed.
