The Library has completed the beta test phase of the new ResData repository infrastructure. Ten EUI-generated datasets are now available for open data sharing. There are over 50 sub-sets. EUI members from all departments and centres are encouraged to submit research data outputs for preservation in the multi-disciplinary ResData repository. The new repository is compliant with the open data mandates of EU Horizon 2020 and other international science funding programmes. The EUI Library offers specialist advice regarding the preparation of data for reposit, data protection and data copyright – which helps EUI members determine if, and when, their data is suitable for open data sharing with, or without, embargo.
Statista is an online portal providing data on the global digital economy, industrial sectors, consumer markets, public opinion, media, demography and macroeconomic trends. EUI members have access from 1 January 2018. Quantitative data from 425 sectors in 50 countries are provided with a range of infographic tools for analysis and visualisation. Data can be located via the Statista search engine, or the top menu tabs. Results can be filtered by left-menu facets, including country/region, industrial category and publication date. Result sets can also be sorted by category: statistics, forecasts, studies, industry reports or infographics. Statista also produces industry reports, market forecasts and ‘toplists’ of sectoral statistics.

EUI members can now submit their research datasets for inclusion in the EUI ResData repository – a solution for sharing and archiving EUI research data outputs. Library staff provide advice on dataset tagging (metadata), formats, structure and whether data should be archived under embargo, or made available as open data. The first step is to complete the online form – providing details about the dataset for reposit. The Library will then make an appointment for data transfer. Full details.
