RODA is the national Romanian institution specialised in archiving electronic data collections obtained by social research.

The archive contains data collections accessible for the academic community and the interested public, for secondary and comparative analysis, under certain access conditions ranging from free access to some level of restriction imposed by owners. The archive serves as an intermediary between the data owners and data users.

RODA is integrated into a global archive network, being affiliated since February 2002 to CESSDA (Council of European Social Science Data Archives) and since December 2002 to IFDO (International Federation of Data Organisations). By these links, international data exchanges are enabled; through RODA, users have access to national and international datasets from other European data archives.

This consortium also contains, as associated institutions: Institute of Sociology "Dimitrie Gusti", Faculty of Sociology and Social Work from the University Babes-Bolyiai, Faculty of Social Humanistic Science from the University of Oradea, CURS - Centre of Urban and Regional Sociology and MMT - Metro Media Transilvania.
