ResonsibleData.io Data Management and De-identification+

Using data for social change work offers many opportunities, but it brings challenges, too. The RD community develops practical ways to deal with the unintended consequences of using data in social change work, establishes best practices, and shares approaches between leading thinkers and doers from different sectors. We discuss thorny topics in-person, facilitate online group discussions on the RD mailing list, and share resources on this site.

DMPTool Data Management and De-identification+

The DMPTool is a free service developed by California Digital Library (CDL) and DataONe that helps researchers and institutions to create high-quality data management plans that meet funder requirements.

Code Ocean (in beta) Data Repositories

Code Ocean is a cloud-based computational reproducibility platform that provides researchers and developers an easy way to share, discover and run code published in academic journals and conferences. Upload code and data in 10 programming languages and link working code in a computational environment with the associated article for free. Code Ocean assigns a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to the algorithm, providing correct attribution and a connection to the published research.

Metametrik Data Repositories

Metametrik is a prototype of a platform for storing and search of econometric results, a project lead by the Open Economics Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation. This prototype is an example of a platform where regression results are stored through input in a spreadsheet by an informed researcher, who enters the results on the level of a single regression. The platform then enables search with the option of several facets, including dependent variable, independent variable, model, controls, journal, year, authors, JEL codes and key words.

Nicebread Data Management and De-identification+

Dr. Felix Schönbrodt’s blog promoting research transparency and open science.

Datavyu Data Management and De-identification+

An Open Data Library for Developmental Science that allows users to decide how they want to code video, audio, physiology, motion, or eye tracking data. Power users can write scripts in the Ruby programming language to extend Datavyu’s functionality.

 

Databrary Data Management and De-identification+

Databrary is a video data library for developmental science. Anyone collecting shareable research data will be able to store and organize their data within Databrary after completing the registration process.

Dataverse Data RepositoriesInterdisciplinary

Dataverse is an open source web application to share, preserve, cite, explore, and analyze research data. It facilitates making data available to others, and allows you to replicate others’ work more easily. Researchers, data authors, publishers, data distributors, and affiliated institutions all receive academic credit and web visibility.

Figshare Data Repositories+

Figshare allows researchers to publish all of their research outputs in an easily citable, sharable and discoverable manner. All file formats can be published, including videos and datasets.

OSF Data Management and De-identification+

Open Science Framework (OSF) is part version control system, part data repository, part collaboration software that allows researchers to move study materials to the cloud, share and find materials, detail individual contributions, make research design more visible, and register materials to certify research design was not modified to alter outcomes. To increase workflow flexibility OSF offers a system where researchers can register a description of their study and its goals. The OSF emphasizes versatility with a very wide range of tools and features including add-ons from other related sites such as Dataverse and Github. Uploaded materials can also be archived and receive a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) or Archival Resource Key (ARK).

Dryad Data Management and De-identification+

Dryad is a curated repository of data underlying peer-reviewed scientific and medical literature, particularly data for which no specialized repository exists. All material in Dryad is associated with a scholarly publication. Its notable features include easy integration into the manuscript submission workflow of its partner journals, the flexibility to make data privately available during peer review, and allowing submitters to set limited-term embargoes post-publication.

ICPSR Data Repositories+

The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) maintains and provides access to a vast archive of social science data for research and instruction (over 10,000 discrete studies and surveys with more than 65,000 datasets). ICPSR has been archiving data since 1962.

Qualitative Data Repository Data Management and De-identification+

QDR selects, ingests, curates, archives, manages, durably preserves, and provides access to digital data used in qualitative and multi-method social inquiry. The repository develops and publicizes common standards and methodologically informed practices for these activities, as well as for the reusing and citing of qualitative data. Four beliefs underpin the repository’s mission: data that can be shared and reused should be; evidence-based claims should be made transparently; teaching is enriched by the use of well-documented data; and rigorous social science requires common understandings of its research methods.

re3data.org Data Repositories+

The Registry of Research Data Repositories (re3data.org) is a global registry of research data repositories that covers research data repositories from different academic disciplines. It presents repositories for the permanent storage and access of data sets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions. re3data.org promotes a culture of sharing, increased access and better visibility of research data. The registry went live in autumn 2012 and is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Mendeley Data Data RepositoriesData Visualization

Mendeley Data is a multidisciplinary, free-to-use open research data repository, where you can upload and share data files up to 10GB so they are archived, preserved and findable for the long-term. To ensure that research data stands the test of time, each version of a dataset is given a unique DOI, and permanently archived with DANS (Data archiving and Networking Services), ensuring that every dataset and citation will be valid in perpetuity.
