Contributing to the research data effort - re3data.org and OpenAIRE sign MoU
during Open Access Week
October 2013 - Athens and Karlsruhe
In order to foster the sharing of research data in science and humanities,
digital research infrastructures need to be in place to ensure the permanent
accessibility and re-use of research data. A number of these infrastructures,
often referred to as research data repositories, have been, or are in the
process of, being developed at both institutional and discipline levels.
With this Memorandum of Understanding, OpenAIRE and re3data.org - Registry of
Research Data Repositories - agree to work jointly to facilitate research data
registration, discovery, access and re-use. By their joint effort, the two
partners will contribute to the development of a vital data-sharing ecosystem,
that supports scientists in their efforts to meet the growing demand of Open
re3data.org provides an overview of existing research data repositories. Since
2012, re3data.org has indexed research data repositories offering researchers,
funding organizations, libraries and publishers an overview of the
heterogeneous research data repository landscape. An innovative icon system
helps researchers to easily identify a suitable research data repository for
the storage of their research data. re3data.org is funded by the German
Research Foundation (DFG).
OpenAIRE is an open access infrastructure, which promotes open research and
measures the impact of funding streams. This is done both through its
Europe-wide network of National Open Access Desks and via services for data
deposit and discovery through its data repository ZENODO. Moreover, through
harvesting repositories and mining techniques OpenAIRE infers links between
publications, research funding and research data. This enables discovery and
re-use, as well as monitoring and the ability to provide metrics. OpenAIREplus
is funded by the EC 7th Framework Programme.
As a first step re3data.org and OpenAIRE will exchange metadata to enable the
easy identification of appropriate research data repositories for the access
and storage of research data. OpenAIRE will integrate data repositories indexed
in the re3data.org registry and in turn return information about usage
statistics for datasets and inferred links between data and publications.
Moreover OpenAIRE and re3data.org will intensify their dialogue on
best-practices and possible standards and guidelines for the emerging research
data repository landscape.
