The information system PANGAEA is operated as an Open Access library aimed at archiving, publishing and distributing georeferenced data from earth system research. PANGAEA is a member of the ICSU World Data System (WDS).
Movebank Data Repository
A free and public archive of animal tracking datasets associated with peer-reviewed publications. The Repository is the long-term archive associated with Movebank (movebank.org), a free, online database created to help animal tracking researchers to manage, share, protect, analyze, and archive their data. Hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology and the University of Konstanz Library.
The FAIRDOMHub is a publicly available resource build using the SEEK software, which enables collaborations within the scientific community. FAIRDOM will establish a support and service network for European Systems Biology. It will serve projects in standardizing, managing and disseminating data and models in a FAIR manner: Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. FAIRDOM is an initiative to develop a community, and establish an internationally sustained Data and Model Management service to the European Systems Biology community. FAIRDOM is a joint action of ERA-Net EraSysAPP and European Research Infrastructure ISBE.
Open Researcher and Contributor ID Registry
ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. The ORCID Registry is a repository of unique researcher identifiers which allows researchers to manage a record of their research activities. In addition, there are APIs that support system-to-system communication and authentication. ORCID makes its code available under an open source license, and will post an annual public data file under a CC0 waiver for free download.
The CancerData site is an effort of the Medical Informatics and Knowledge Engineering team (MIKE for short) of Maastro Clinic, Maastricht, The Netherlands. It offers a central, online repository for the sustained storage of clinical protocols, publications and research datasets. The data that are offered can vary from documents, spreadsheets to (bio-)medical images and treatment simulations. CancerData is a registered member of DataCite, which is an international consortium and member of the International DOI Foundation. Via DataCite, we have the ability to offer persistent identifiers to the datasets via the registration of Digital Object Identifiers (DOI).
Generalist research data repository built and developed by OpenAIRE and CERN, to ensure that everyone can join in Open Science.
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.
DataCite is a leading global non-profit organisation that provides persistent identifiers (DOIs) for research data. Their goal is to help the research community locate, identify, and cite research data with confidence. They support the creation and allocation of DOIs and accompanying metadata. They provide services that support the enhanced search and discovery of research content. They also promote data citation and advocacy through community-building efforts and responsive communication and outreach materials. DataCite gathers metadata for each DOI assigned to an object. The metadata is used for a large index of research data that can be queried directly to find data, obtain stats and explore connections. All the metadata is free to access and review. To showcase and expose the metadata gathered, DataCite provides an integrated search interface, where it is possible to search, filter and extract all the details from a collection of millions of records.
Ag Data Commons
The Ag Data Commons is a data access system maintained by the US Department of Agriculture's (USDA) National Agricultural Library. It uses a customized version of open-source DKAN software, which is compliant with U.S. Project Open Data standards for federal agencies providing access to publicly-funded data. Ag Data Commons holds data files managed directly by NAL and also links to datasets and resources located on other websites. The Ag Data Commons provides access to a wide variety of open data relevant to agricultural research and related domains. These may include subjects such as agronomy, genomics, hydrology, soils, agro-ecosystems, sustainability science, and economic statistics. Data included in the Ag Data Commons is funded in whole or in part by USDA. Our goal is that Ag Data Commons will foster innovative data re-use, integration, and visualization to support bigger, better science and policy.
Portail Data Inra
INRA is Europe’s top agricultural research institute and the world’s number two centre for the agricultural sciences. Data Inra is offered by INRA as part of its mission to open the results of its research. Data Inra will share research data in relation to food, nutrition, agriculture and environment. It includes experimental, simulation and observation data, omics data, survey and text data. Only data produced by or in collaboration with INRA will be hosted in the repository, but anyone can access the metadata and the open data.
CaltechDATA is an institutional data repository for Caltech. Caltech library runs the repository to preserve the accomplishments of Caltech researchers and share their results with the world. Caltech-associated researchers can upload data, link data with their publications, and assign a permanent DOI so that others can reference the data set. The repository also preserves software and has automatic Github integration. All files present in the repository are open access or embargoed, and all metadata is always available to the public.
Environmental Data Portal
EnviDat is a unified and managed access portal for data from WSL and SLF. EnviDat is designed as a portal to publish, connect and search across existing data but is not intended to become a large data centre hosting original data. While sharing of data is centrally facilitated, data management remains decentralised and the know-how and responsibility to curate research data remains with the original data providers.
CyVerse Data Common Repository
The Data Commons provides services to manage, organize, preserve, publish, discover, and reuse data. Using our pipelines, you can easily publish data to the NCBI or directly to the CyVerse Data Commons. CyVerse Curated Data are stable and have DOIs. Community Released Data are maintained by community members and may not be permanent.
Imperial College Research Data Repository
A lightweight digital repository for data based on the concepts of collections of filesets. Both the collection and the fileset are assigned a DOI by the DataCite organisation which can be quoted in articles
Federated Research Data Repository
The Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR) is a place for Canadian researchers to deposit and share research data and to facilitate discovery of research data in Canadian repositories.
