UK Data Service Annual Report for 2022-23 published

The latest UK Data Service Annual Report is now available. This report covers the period between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023.

The UK Data Service has become more than the principal social science digital repository in the UK as we continue to enhance learning, research and policy development. This latest report details how we continue to lead and share best practice across the national and international research landscape, shaping and delivering active data preservation services, data curation, literacy and impact for a stronger society.

An exciting time

This is a time of change for the Service as we near the end of our current award and our key funder, the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), leads work to define Future Data Services. The full potential of AI and machine learning is there to be explored when it comes to enriching data and procuring the maximum value from our resources. While we anticipate that during our new award we will be pushing the boundaries of technical innovation ever further, our primary aim remains the provision of access to data enabling quality social and economic research. Now and in the future, our Service users will be at the centre of everything we do.
