On 8 May, CERN and OpenAIRE launched a new one-stop research data store called ZENODO. The EUI Library has set up a data community (beta) in ZENODO in order to better understand the workflow and general features of the repository. Pending review, we will ask EUI scholars to consider ZENODO as a data preservation and platforming solution. Only data generated in the context of EUI research projects will be considered. For copyright and licensing reasons, datasets that are predominantly derived from licensed and restricted databases cannot be included. Further details are on this ZENODO page. Please sent feedback to Thomas Bourke.
Zenodo, a new repository for research data has been launched by OpenAIRE and CERN, with the support of the European Commission. The new Recode project has begun work on a strategy for open data in Europe. The EU Open Data Portal (beta) has been launched by the European Commission with partners Eurostat, the EC Joint Research Centre, DG Industry and other EU institutions. Feedback is welcome via this form. Visit the EUI Library data services page at this link.
The Library has launched a new Data Services page to raise awareness of Open Data resources and support. In the coming months a new Data Handbook will be open-edited with EUI researchers and staff who are working with research data, or plan to do so in the future. Section-heads of the Handbook were presented by the Library on 22 February to mark Open Data Day. Join the alerts’ list via [email protected]
EUI scholars using research data are invited to give their views on a possible data-sharing repository. The repository would offer the following services: an online data-sharing resource; assigned descriptors for datasets; cross-referencing with the EUI publications’ repository Cadmus; quantitative and qualitative data deposit; long-term preservation. Those who are currently using and generating data – or who plan to do so in the future – are invited to give feedback via [email protected].
The European Credit Research Institute (ECRI) database on Lending to Households in Europe was updated to 2012 on Tuesday. The database includes a new analysis of the impact of the sovereign debt crisis on European credit markets. There will be two introductions to the Statistical Data Portal in the Library training room on Thursday, 13 September. Register with [email protected] for the 14:00 session, or the repeat session at 15:00.
