MEDOC (Multi Experiment Data & Operation Center) is a national center for space solar physics, running under an agreement between CNRS/INSUUniversité Paris-Saclay, and CNES. MEDOC is located at Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale in Orsay, France.

It was initially created in 1995 and developed as a European data and operation center for the SOHO mission. Later, it got enriched with data from other space-based solar observations. MEDOC will also include data from Solar Orbiter.

In addition to observational data, MEDOC also provides datasets derived from observations (maps, catalogues...), tools for data analysis and interpretation, and numerical simulation results.

Furthermore, Institut d'Astrophysique Spatiale researchers can help users thanks to their knowledge of most of the instruments having data at MEDOC.

MEDOC is open to the scientific community and has  CDPP and BASS2000 as natural partners. So that we can report the publications using MEDOC to our funding agencies, please tell us about such publications, and please include the following text in the acknowledgements:

"This work used data provided by the MEDOC data and operations centre (CNES / CNRS / Univ. Paris-Saclay),"
