As part of the FAIRsFAIR project, which aims to supply practical solutions for the use of the FAIR data principles throughout the research data life cycle, the Repository Finder is extended to query for repositories relevant to FAIRsFAIR Project….”
Abstract: re3data is the global registry for research data repositories . With January 2019 the service lists over 2250 digital repositories and provides an extensive description based on a detailed metadata schema . A variety of funders, publishers and scientific organizations around the world refer to re3data within their guidelines and policies, recommending the service to researchers looking for appropriate repositories for storage and search of research data. Starting with an introduction and overview to re3data and its current status under the auspices of DataCite, the talk will outline the recent and upcoming development in a heterogeneous and highly dynamic research data infrastructure landscape. The diverse requirements of the institutional stakeholders as well as the scientific communities impose demanding challenges on the architecture, networking with other services and technical implementation. The presentation will illustrate that with recent examples, like the integration and reuse of re3data in the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) ‘Repository Finder’ , landscape analysis of data repositories for the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and a planned cooperation with B2FIND, RADAR and GeRDI on the subject classification. Fostering Open Science and FAIR data, the talk will close with a prospect on the planned next steps towards an open and linked data service matching the demands of researchers and organization.

“This article provides a comprehensive descriptive and statistical analysis of metadata information on 1,381 research data repositories worldwide and across all research disciplines. The analyzed metadata is derived from the re3data database, enabling search and browse functionalities for the global registry of research data repositories. The analysis focuses mainly on institutions that operate research data repositories, types and subjects of research data repositories (RDR), access conditions as well as services provided by the research data repositories. RDR differ in terms of the service levels they offer, languages they support or standards they comply with. These statements are commonly acknowledged by saying the RDR landscape is heterogeneous. As expected, we found a heterogeneous RDR landscape that is mostly influenced by the repositories’ disciplinary background for which they offer services.”
