New from the WorldFAIR project (https://worldfair-project.eu/), this report
provides an overview of the data harmonisation practices of comparative
(cross-national) social surveys, through case studies of: (1) the European
Social Survey (ESS) and (2) a satellite study, the Australian Social Survey
International – European Social Survey (AUSSI-ESS).  To do this, we compare
and contrast the practices between the Australian Data Archive and Sikt.no,
the organisations responsible for the data management of ESS and AUSSI-ESS.

The case studies consider the current data management and harmonisation
practices of study partners in the ESS, including an analysis of the
current practices with FAIR data standards, particularly leveraging FAIR
Information Profiles (FIPs) and FAIR Enabling Resources (FERs).

The comparative analysis of the two case studies considers key similarities
and differences in the management of the two data collections. Core
differences in the use of standards and accessible, persistent registry
services are highlighted, as these impact on the potential for shared,
integrated reuse of services and content between the two partner

The report concludes with a set of recommended practices for improved
management and automation of ESS data going forward—setting the stage for
Phase 2 of WorldFAIR Work Package 6—and outlines the proposed means for
implementing this management in the two partner organisations.

These recommendations focus on three areas of shared interest:
• Aligning standards
• Establishing common tools
• Establishing and using registries
in order to advance implementation of the FAIR principles, and to improve
interoperability and reusability of digital data in social sciences
