FAIRsharing is here! From our first incarnation, BioSharing.org, which focussed on the life sciences, we are growing into FAIRsharing.org, to serve users across all disciplines and support Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) data.

ready TDWG Access Protocol for Information Retrieval

Abbreviation:TAPIR


General Information
The TDWG Access Protocol for Information Retrieval (TAPIR) is a Web Service protocol and XML schema to perform queries across distributed databases of varied physical and logical structure. It was originally designed to be used by federated networks. TAPIR is intended for communication between applications, using HTTP as the transport mechanism. TAPIR's flexibility makes it suitable to both very simple service implementations where the provider only responds to a set of pre-defined queries, or more advanced implementations where the provider software can dynamically parse complex queries referencing output models supplied by the client.

Implementing Databases (5)
Global Biodiversity Information Facility
GBIF, the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, is an international open data infrastructure, funded by governments. It is not a data repository. Rather, GBIF indexes thousands of datasets shared freely by hundreds of institutions worldwide making it the biggest biodiversity database on the Internet. GBIF.org makes the data discoverable and citable, assigning each download a DOI and storing it for an extended period of time. More than 1 peer-reviewed research publication citing GBIF as a source of data is published every day, in studies spanning the impacts of climate change, the spread of pests and diseases, priority areas for conservation and food security. To share your data with GBIF follow this quick guide: http://www.gbif.org/publishing-data/quick-guide To deposit/host your data, it is recommended you use one of the trusted IPT data hosting centres (DHC) listed in FAIRsharing.org. The DHC will provide you with an account on their IPT, which will allow you to manage your own datasets and publish them through GBIF.org.

Atlas of Living Australia IPT - GBIF Australia Repository
The Atlas of Living Australia (GBIF Australia) maintains this data repository in collaboration with the GBIF Secretariat, built using an installation of the GBIF Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT). Able to assign DOIs to datasets, it ensures the data is disseminated in standardized format in order to facilitate wider reuse and integration of the data, for example into GBIF.org. GBIF Australia supports researchers in Australia by providing them helpdesk assistance and by hosting their data for free in this repository.

GBIF Spain IPT - GBIF Spain Repository
GBIF Spain maintains this data repository, built using an installation of the GBIF Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT). Able to assign DOIs to datasets, it ensures the data is disseminated in standardized format in order to facilitate wider reuse and integration of the data, for example into GBIF.org. GBIF Spain supports researchers in Spain by providing them helpdesk assistance and by hosting their data for free in this repository. It has already been used to publish/host data in scientific publications, e.g. http://dx.doi.org/10.15470/qomfu6 which is the data this Scientific Data publication is based on: http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/sdata.2016.85

Canadensys IPT - GBIF Canadensys Repository
Canadensys maintains this data repository, built using an installation of the GBIF Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT). Able to assign DOIs to datasets, it ensures the data is disseminated in standardized format in order to facilitate wider reuse and integration of the data, for example into GBIF.org. Canadensys supports researchers in Canada by providing them helpdesk assistance and by hosting their data for free in this repository.

SiB Colombia IPT - GBIF Colombia Repository
The Colombian Biodiversity Information System (SiB Colombia) maintains this data repository, built using an installation of the GBIF Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT). Able to assign DOIs to datasets, it ensures the data is disseminated in standardized format in order to facilitate wider reuse and integration of the data, for example into GBIF.org. SiB Colombia supports researchers in Colombia by providing them helpdesk assistance and by hosting their data for free in this repository.
