The Science and Research Section (KVV) carries out tasks in the sphere of theoretical and practical study of procedures and problems relating to archival functions.

The Act on Archives defines the role of the Slovak National Archives as the leading science and research institute in the field of archival studies in Slovakia. To fulfil tasks arising from this role, this independent organisational unit of the Archives was established in February 1990. The concept of this section is to slove questions of basic theoretical archival research. The science and research section is the only scientific institution in archival studies in Slovakia.

Tasks carried out in research are aimed at improving the professional level of the archives in order to provide professional preservation and processing of archival sources related to the history of Slovakia.
