This paper presents findings on existing potentials for the establishment of social sciences digital data archives in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, and Serbia. Findings are based on a standardized survey that was conducted in all three countries on representative sample of social sciences researchers, with a 63% average rate of completed questionnaires. Results of the survey show that the potential for establishment of digital data archives in all considered countries are large, regarding the scope of data produced, as well as positive attitude of researchers toward data sharing and benefits of data archives. Also, results point to lack of knowledge in dealing with metadata as the main obstacle for data sharing, which further implies that existence of national data archives, with staff trained to underpin researchers’ efforts in process of data documentation and preservation, should be very beneficial for the future development of social sciences in these countries.
