DORIS – publish and share your research data

The Swedish National Data Service (SND) is an initiative for infrastructure for Open Access to research data run by a consortium of Swedish universities, of which Karolinska Institutet is one. SND's system for describing and sharing research data is called DORIS. With the help of DORIS, researchers can publish data about datasets, regardless of whether they can be made openly available or if they contain sensitive data, such as personal data.

Data sets deposited or shared via SND will be provided a persistent identifier of the type Digital Object Identifier (DOI). The description undergoes an examination of the metadata quality carried out by the KI Data Access Unit. When the data description is complete, it is published in the SND research data catalog. The data set is stored on KI's central storage solution and is linked to the description in the research data catalog.

KI's central storage for publishing datasets is under developement. Meanwhile, KI's Data Access Unit provides a storage area for datasets up to 1 TB that include individual files that have a maximum size of 250 GB each. In the case of larger files, contact before you upload. In our storage area you can store datasets where Karolinska Institutet is the research principal responsible for the data. Datasets can be stored whether they contain sensitive information or not. If you are going to process sensitive personal data in a research project, you must have an ethical approval from the Swedish Ethical Review Authority. Contact us for more information.
