If repositories meet certain standards, they can get a seal of approval: sustainability of your data.-long term preservation.

Integraty, datasets are accessible, are the datasets provided in a usable format, is the data reliable and does the repository provide a unique persistent identifier so the data can be referred to12

ZenodoThe catch-all repository

All research and data welcomeCiteable. DiscoverableCommunity Collections Funding Flexible licensingSafeDropBox integration

Easy: upload describe - publish13Open Access Week 21/10/2015

- open to all research output from all fields of science, - all data gets a digital object identifier to make them easily and uniquely citable. - You can also create your own community where you can accept or reject all datasets, articles, but also working papers, presentation or images from your project.- It is integrated in reporting lines for research funded by the European commission via openAIRE.- Although they are highly supportive of open access they accept data under a variety of licenses. - It is safe: it uses the same cloud infrastructure as research data from CERN's Large Hadron Collider. It is a safe way to store data since data is stored in CERN Data Center. Both data files and metadata are kept in multiple online replicas.- They also integrated github. And if you would like to upload files straight from you dropbox, thats possible too.

EvaluationImpact 20

Open Access publications and research data are harvested from repositories. But also descriptive metadata will be ingested and linked to publicatios. All this information is cleaned, de-duplicated and linked. By developing a European-wide research information system a range of services can be developed. 20
