ready Dublin Core Metadata Element Set

Abbreviation: DC


General Information
The Dublin Metadata Element Set, which is often called Dublin Core (DC), is a standardized metadata scheme for description of any kind of resource such as documents in electronic and non-electronic form, digital materials (such as video, sound, images, etc) and composite media like web pages. is a small set of vocabulary terms that can be used to describe several kinds of resources. Dublin Core Metadata may be used for multiple purposes, from simple resource description, to combining metadata vocabularies of different metadata standards, to providing interoperability for metadata vocabularies in the Linked Data cloud and Semantic Web implementations.

figshare
figshare is a data publishing platform that is free for all researchers. Some of figshare’s core beliefs are: academic research outputs should be as open as possible, as closed as necessary; academic research outputs should never be behind a paywall; academic research outputs should be human and machine readable/query-able; academic infrastructure should be interchangeable; academic researchers should never have to put the same information into multiple systems at the same institution; identifiers for everything; and the impact of research is independent of where it is published and what type of output it is. figshare supports embargoing and managed access, and will embargo data while undergoing peer review. Metadata in figshare is licenced under is CC0. All files and metadata can be accessed from docs.figshare.com. figshare has also partnered with DuraSpace and Chronopolis to offer further assurances that public data will be archived under the stewardship of Chronopolis. In the highly unlikely event of multiple AWS S3 failures, figshare can restore public user content from Chronopolis. figshare is supported through Institutional, Funder, and Governmental service subscriptions.

QDR provides search tools to facilitate the discovery of data, and also serves as a portal to material beyond its own holdings, with links to U.S. and international archives. The repository’s initial emphasis is on political science. Four beliefs underpin the repository's mission: data that can be shared and reused should be; evidence-based claims should be made transparently; teaching is enriched by the use of well-documented data; and rigorous social science requires common understandings of its research methods.

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.

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.
