ready Open Archives Initiative Object Reuse and Exchange

Abbreviation: OAI-ORE

General Information
Open Archives Initiative develops and promotes interoperability standards that aim to facilitate the efficient dissemination of content; OAI has its roots in the open access and institutional repository movements. The OAI-ORE is a standard for the description and exchange of compound digital objects (e.g. distributed resources with multiple media types including text, images, data, and video), to expose the rich content in these aggregations to applications that support authoring, deposit, exchange, visualization, reuse, and preservation. The intent of the effort is to develop standards that generalize across all web-based information including the increasing popular social networks of “web 2.0”.

4TU.Centre for Research Data
4TU.Centre for Research Data (short: 4TU.ResearchData) was started in 2008 as an initiative of the three technical universities in the Netherlands – Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, and the University of Twente. The ambition was, and still is, to create and maintain a national state-of-the-art facility for storing and preserving science and engineering research data and for making those data openly accessible. The data archive has been fully operational since 2010 and it has evolved to become a trusted and certified repository for science and engineering. By publishing data-sets via 4TU.ResearchData you will make your data FAIR. Every single data-set is assigned a DOI and metadata (F), the archive is accessible 24/7 online worldwide via https protocol (A), the data-files adhere to community and preservation standards (I), and a readme-file and usage license is provided for every data-set (R). This archive is accessible and usable for any researcher from the science and engineering disciplines. Please visit our website for more details.
