re3data.org is Moving Forward: New Repositories and Functionalities
The goal of re3data.org is to create a global registry of research data repositories. The registry will cover research data repositories from different academic disciplines. re3data.org will present repositories for the permanent storage and access of data sets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions. In the course of this mission re3data.org aims to promote a culture of sharing, increased access and better visibility of research data.
The number of indexed research data repositories has grown significantly. Currently re3data.org lists 611 research data repositories. 398 of these are described in detail using the re3data.org vocabulary.
