The Social Data Science Lab maintained and distributed the ESRC COSMOS Open Data Analytics software until early 2023. COSMOS was available at no cost to academic institutions and not-for-profit organisations.  Unfortunately the funding for COSMOS has now ceased and the Lab will not be able to support the software going forward.
