What do I do if I cannot find what I am looking for in the FDZ-DZHW data?

The collection area of the FDZ-DZHW comprises data material from the research field of higher education research and science studies. Basically, the search portal of the FDZ-DZHW only lists the available Scientific Use Files (SUF) or Campus Use Files (CUF). If you're interested in further data of the DZHW,  please contact userservice@dzhw.eu.

If you still cannot find what you are looking for, there are other research data centres in Germany, each with a different focus and not in competition with each other. Please bear in mind that even data that was not collected directly for the research field may have analytical potential for higher education research and science studies. Here you will find a list of all data centres accredited by the German Data Forum (RatSWD). We recommend a search at German Network of Educational Research Data VerbundFDB or at da-ra.
