Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) is the national Dutch organization for permanent access to research data, with a focus on the humanities and social sciences. DANS offers three services to the scholarly community: DataverseNL, EASY, and NARCIS.
DataverseNL is intended to support data management during the research process and as an intermediate archive for the short term (up to five or ten years). When a research project is concluded, researchers can deposit their research data in the long-term archiving system EASY. In the portal NARCIS research data of DANS and other research institutes are shown in context, namely in relation to e-publications, and other research information.
Via EASY and NARCIS one can find “grey literature” in the Netherlands, such as data documentation, archaeological reports, doctoral theses, conference papers, patents et cetera produced in the universities and other research institutes in The Netherlands.
