NARCIS is the gateway that provides access to over 252,000 of scholarly datasets (March 2020) from researchers at Dutch universities and research institutes. DANS with the data archive EASY and 4TU.ResearchData provides durable storage and access to research data. These data sets are also made public by NARCIS.
In 2013 a number of Dutch universities, universities of applied sciences, and research institutes joined the DataverseNL, a partnership that jointly manages and deploys the Dataverse Network open source application for the archiving, citing and sharing of research data during the research by researchers themselves. The data management is in the hands of the institutions; DANS has been managing DataverseNL since May 2014.
DANS provides sustainable access to research data especially in the field of humanities and social sciences through EASY, an online archiving system. Researchers can use EASY to archive their own research data for the long term. Most data are open data or open after registration. 4TU.Centre for Research Data (4TU.ResearchData), a cooperation of TU Delft, TU Eindhoven, Wageningen University and Research Centre, and University of Twente, guarantees the storage, reuse and continuing accessibility of science and engineering research data.
DANS, 4TU.ResearchData, and SURFsara have joined forces on sustainable data archiving within the Research Data Netherlands (RDNL) partnership. The partnership is also open to other parties.
For more information on open data in the Netherlands see www.openaccess.nl.
The publications produced from the projects supported by TUBITAK must be uploaded to TUBITAK Open Archive that provides service under the name Aperta . It is recommended that the research data of these publications should be open access.
TUBITAK has prepared the “Research Data Training Portal”where sample data management plans are shared to assist the researchers in data management and sharing.
The Registry of Research Data Repositories, lists 28 data repositories where Belgian institutions are involved. The complete list can be found on re3data.org.
Local governments as well as the federal government are in favour of Open Data and have put mandates in place to secure Open Access to government data. On the Open Data portal of the Flemish government, a large number of data sets are available to consult and reuse. Apart from the government and the repositories, there are various other projects and initiatives supporting, implementing and researching Open Data and its possibilities.
There are no significant advancements related to open research data. The only document supporting open access to the research data is the Open Access Declaration initiative (2012), pursuing the goal of broadest possible access to digital publication and research data. Although the Declaration was signed by 20 state ministries, there are no funders’ or institutions’ policies mandating open access to the research data.
Three institutions are actively engaged in open research data issues:
Ruđer Bošković Insitute (RBI) – as a NOAD in the OpenAIRE project RBI is providing researchers with necessary support and education related to the open research data enabled via ZENODO or other disciplinary repositories. RBI institutional repository FULIR has been upgraded to provide research data deposition, but these activities are still in the early phase.
Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Zagreb (FHSS) was participating in the open research data project like SERSCIDA, Seeds and CESSDA ERIC and organizing events on open research data. In 2019 the Croatian Social Science Data Archive was launched, and since Croatia has become a CESSDA member and FHSS service provider.
SRCE is developing DABAR infrastructure and enabling the deposition of the research data and promoting best practices in research data sharing as a Croatian National Research Data Alliance (RDA) node.
Since June 2020 there is a National repository for open access to scientific information. It is a cross-disciplinary repository administrated by NACID for scientific publications that are result from publicly funded research.
Bulgarian institutional repositories (all integrated with BPOS):
- Repository at IMI-BAS - http://sci-gems.math.bas.bg
- Research at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”- http://research.uni-sofia.bg
- Electronic Repository of Central Medical Library – Medical university Sofia http://cml.mu-sofia.bg:8080/jspui/handle/10861/1
- Medical Academic Repository of MU-Varna - https://repository.mu-varna.bg/
- New Bulgarian University NBU Scholar Electronic Repository - http://eprints.nbu.bg
- Academic Research Repository at the Burgas Free University http://research.bfu.bg:8080/jspui/
Some Spanish universities and research institutions are taking steps forward related to research data both developing policies and infrastructure, but also designing new services to support researchers and fostering capacity building on librarians.
Particularly, Madroño is gathering their main services through their website InvestigaM, starting from the DMP tool Pagoda till their data repository e-Ciencia-datos. CSUC has also developed a tool to support the creation of DMPs Pla de Gestió de Dades de Recerca, besides a different set of guidelines to support researchers.
The Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) also provides data management services through Digital CSIC. At the moment there are 29 data repositories in Spain indexed at the re3data.org database, and some universities and research centres are working to establish the best tools to manage and open up research data such as the INIA.
Additionally, national and international research infrastructures based in Spain are collecting and archiving datasets; data processing centres, such as Barcelona Supercomputing Center, is already an international centre of reference providing services related to open science. In some cases, the centres are dealing successfully with the challenges of open science, such as the data protection issues at CRG-Center for Genomic Regulation, European Genome-Phenome Archive at the CRG.
National repositories in Re3Data: https://www.re3data.org/search?query=&countries=CHE
There are four national data centres registered in the re3data database. Two of these collect climate and environmental data (Environment Climate Data, ECDS and Bolin Centre Database), one is for the Life Sciences (National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS)), and one, the Swedish National Data Service (SND), is a service organisation for researchers within the Humanities, Social Sciences and Health Sciences. SND, hosted by Gothenburg University, is a national resource that facilitates access to new and existing research data from researchers in Sweden and internationally . SND also provides support to researchers in Sweden throughout the process of data management. Some of the HEIs like the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Lund University and Stockholm University, have already adopted or are planning to adopt a local strategy for managing and storing research data. Also, some HEIs are already using their local database or DiVA for storing small datasets.
Another national infrastructure for research data is SNIC, the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing. SNIC provides resources and user support for large scale computation and data storage to meet the needs of researchers from all scientific disciplines and from all over Sweden. Also, SUNET, the Swedish University Computer Network, provides Swedish HEIs with access to national and international data communication, national academic identity infrastructure and related services. For instance, SUNET has signed a consortium agreement with ORCID Inc, so that all libraries and research organisations in Sweden have access to ORCID’s technical system.
Data repositories related to Finland in the r3data.org registry
The Registry of Research Data Repositories has currently listed (as of March 2020) a total of 35 Data Repositories, in which Austrian Institutions are involved.
Luxembourg does not yet have a national data repository. Researchers are recommended to deposit their data on a subject-specific repository. You may search for a suitable one on the Registry of Research Data Repositories, Re3data. Alternatively, you may deposit your data in a general repository such as Zenodo.
Currently, 37 data repositories are listed in Re3Data filtering by country “Italy”. 19 are based in Italy, the remaining ones are run in collaboration with foreign organizations. Since 2018, three universities have adopted a dataverse based data repository.
