ready Data Catalog Vocabulary

Abbreviation: DCAT


General Information
An RDF vocabulary designed to facilitate interoperability between data catalogs published on the Web. By using DCAT to describe datasets in data catalogs, publishers increase discoverability and enable applications easily to consume metadata from multiple catalogs. It further enables decentralized publishing of catalogs and facilitates federated dataset search across sites. Aggregated DCAT metadata can serve as a manifest file to facilitate digital preservation.

Zenodo
Zenodo is a generalist research data repository built and developed by OpenAIRE and CERN. It was developed to aid Open Science and is built on open source code. Zenodo helps researchers receive credit by making the research results citable and through OpenAIRE integrates them into existing reporting lines to funding agencies like the European Commission. Citation information is also passed to DataCite and onto the scholarly aggregators. Content is available publicly under any one of 400 open licences (from opendefinition.org and spdx.org). Restricted and Closed content is also supported. Free for researchers below 50 GB/dataset. Content is both online on disk and offline on tape as part of a long-term preservation policy. Zenodo supports managed access (with an access request workflow) as well as embargoing generally and during peer review. The base infrastructure of Zenodo is provided by CERN, a non-profit IGO. Projects are funded through grants.

Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office
The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) is a publicly accessible earth science data repository created to curate, publicly serve (publish), and archive digital data and information from biological, chemical and biogeochemical research conducted in coastal, marine, great lakes and laboratory environments. The BCO-DMO repository works closely with investigators funded through the NSF OCE Division’s Biological and Chemical Sections and the Division of Polar Programs Arctic Sciences and Antarctic Organisms & Ecosystems. The office provides services that span the full data life cycle, from data management planning support and DOI creation, to archive with appropriate national facilities.

JRC Data Catalogue
The JRC Data Catalogue gives access to the multidisciplinary data produced and maintained by the Joint Research Centre, the European Commission's in-house science service providing independent scientific advice and support to policies of the European Union. NB: The JRC Data Catalogue is also included in scientific publishers' submission systems as "European Commission, Joint Research Centre (JRC)".

INPTDAT – The Data Platform for Plasma Technology
The interdisciplinary data platform INPTDAT provides easy access to research data and information from all fields of applied plasma physics and plasma medicine. It aims to support the findability, accessibility, interoperability and re-use of data for the low-temperature plasma physics community.

Data.CDC.gov
Data.CDC.gov hosts data sets published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on public health topics.

Arctic Permafrost Geospatial Centre
The Arctic Permafrost Geospatial Centre (APGC) provides open access to geospatial permafrost data from the Arctic. APGC contains metadata descriptions and visualizations, and links out to the data stored by the publishing data repository. APGC also invites submissions from both individual users as well as project consortiums.

Data.gov
Data.gov was created to improve public access to the open data generated by the US government, including federal, state, local, and tribal government data. Under the OPEN Government Data Act, government data is required to be made available in open, machine-readable formats, while continuing to ensure privacy and security.

Health Data Research Innovation Gateway
The Health Data Research Innovation Gateway (the ‘Gateway’) provides a common entry point to discover and enquire about access to UK health datasets for research and innovation. It provides detailed information about the datasets, which are held by members of the UK Health Data Research Alliance, such as a description, size of the population, and the legal basis for access. The Gateway includes the ability to search for research projects, publications and health data tools, such as those related to COVID-19. New interactive features provide a community forum for researchers to collaborate and connect and the ability to add research projects. The Innovation Gateway does not hold or store any datasets or patient or health data but rather acts as a portal to allow discovery of datasets and to request access to them for health research. A dataset is a collection of related individual pieces of data but in the case of health data, identifiable information (e.g. name or NHS number) is removed and data is de-identified where possible. When you access the Gateway you will not be able to view or extract the data itself. Instead, you will be able to see information that describes what the different datasets are (e.g. where the dataset has come from, a description of the dataset, the time period and the geographical areas the dataset covers). In order to access the data, you will need to sign in and then follow the access request process. Only once your request has been through the process to ensure your application meets all of the requirements and is approved by the data controller will you be able to access the data. Your access to the data will be provided outside of the Gateway in line with the processes of the data controller - read through our FAQs for more information on the process. The datasets that are discoverable through the Innovation Gateway are from organisations in the NHS, research institutes and charities, which are part of the UK Health Data Research Alliance. You can find out more about its members on the UK Health Data Research Alliance website. The information provided about the datasets has been provided by the relevant data controller and is continually updated.
