Google launched a new search tool for open data on 5 September. Google Dataset Search (beta) helps find open datasets and data series – by searching data repositories worldwide. The new resource searches both open public data repositories (governments; international organisations) and open research data repositories (universities, research institutions). Full details of the new search tool are in the Google Blog and this video. Dataset Search is developed by Google’s AI research division. For access to licensed, statistical datasets at the EUI, visit the Library’s Data Portal.
10 Datasets now available in Library ResData repository for preserving and sharing EUI research data outputs
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.
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.

Zenodo – the open data repository service maintained by CERN – announced the abolition of the 2GB file size limit on 13 September. The repository now accepts files of up to 50GB. The EUI Library has created an EUI data community in Zenodo. EUI members can submit data for inclusion by writing to [email protected]
Just deposit your publication in Cadmus, EUI Research Repository, which is OpenAIRE compatible. Sharing information with OpenAIRE, allows Cadmus to link your publications with your project. In this way all your project publications will automatically appear in CORDIS system and will be reported automatically to the EC’s participant portal. How? Deposit the final peer reviewed manuscript […]
