SIOR (Social Impact Open Repository) is an open access repository to display, share and store the social impact of research results. Achieving impact is a growing demand from society to science and to scientists, but this information had not yet been systematically gathered and registered. SIOR is the first open access worldwide registry on social impact, a non-profit initiative to enhance scientific research with social impact.
The Media Repository is a web-based digital asset management system to store, organize and share digital media files. Not only images and documents are directly supported – audio and video content is supported as well. The data can be re-used in other systems. The system manages a variety of file formats and metadata schemes. It stores and organizes media data and helps to manage workflows with them. Public web presentations are possible as well as collaborative work in restricted groups. The Media Repository helps both small teams and larger research projects in the management of media assets and their long-term storage.
CaltechDATA is an institutional data repository for Caltech. Caltech library runs the repository to preserve the accomplishments of Caltech researchers and share their results with the world. Caltech-associated researchers can upload data, link data with their publications, and assign a permanent DOI so that others can reference the data set. The repository also preserves software and has automatic Github integration. All files present in the repository are open access or embargoed, and all metadata is always available to the public.
The figshare service for The Open University was launched in 2016 and allows researchers to store, share and publish research data. It helps the research data to be accessible by storing metadata alongside datasets. Additionally, every uploaded item receives a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which allows the data to be citable and sustainable. If there are any ethical or copyright concerns about publishing a certain dataset, it is possible to publish the metadata associated with the dataset to help discoverability while sharing the data itself via a private channel through manual approval.
Figshare has been chosen as the University of Adelaide's official data and digital object repository with unlimited local storage. All current staff and HDR students can access and publish research data and digital objects on the University of Adelaide's Figshare site. Because Figshare is cloud-based, you can access it anywhere and at any time.
AMS Acta is the institutional open access repository which enables the researchers of the Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna to share, preserve and showcase their scientific results making them easily accessible, citable and reusable. The repository collects and disseminates scientific publications, research data and preprints. AMS Acta is the archiving infrastructure for the University of Bologna’s researchers participating in the European programme H2020 that requires open access and the mandatory deposit of all funded peer-reviewed publications in a repository. AMS Acta collects both publications and research data so it is also a suitable archiving solution for the funded projects participating in the H2020 Open Research Data Pilot.
mdw Repository provides researchers with a robust infrastructure for research data management and ensures accessibility of research data during and after completion of research projects, thus, providing a quality boost to contemporary and future research.
e-cienciaDatos is a multidisciplinary data repository that houses the scientific datasets of researchers from the public universities of the Community of Madrid and the UNED, members of the Consorcio Madroño, in order to give visibility to these data, to ensure its preservation And facilitate their access and reuse. e-cienciaDatos is structured as a system constituted by different communities that collects datasets of each of the individual universities. e-cienciaDatos offers the deposit and publication of datasets, assigning a digital object identifier DOI to each of them. The association of a dataset with a DOI will facilitate data verification, dissemination, reuse, impact and long-term access. In addition, the repository provides a standardized citation for each dataset, which contains sufficient information so that it can be identified and located, including the DOI.
Etsin is a research data finder that contains descriptive information – that is, metadata – on research datasets. In the service you can search and find data from various fields of research. A researcher, research group or organisation can use Etsin to publish information on their datasets and offer them for wider use. The metadata contained in Etsin makes it easy for anyone to discover the datasets. Etsin assigns a permanent URN identifier to datasets, making it possible to link to the dataset and gather merit through its publication and use. The metadata enables users to search for datasets and evaluate the potential for reuse. Etsin includes a description of the dataset, keywords and various dataset identifiers. The dataset information includes, for example, its subject, language, author, owner and how it is licensed for reuse. Good description of data plays an important role in its discoverability and visibility. Etsin encourages comprehensive descriptions by adapting a common set of discipline independent metadata fields and by making it easy to enter metadata. Etsin only collects metadata on datasets, not the data themselves. Anyone may browse and read the metadata. Etsin can be used with a browser or through an open interface (API). The service is discipline independent and free to use. Etsin is a service provided by the Ministry of Education and Culture to actors in the Finnish research system. The service is produced by CSC – IT Center for Science (CSC). Customer service contacts and feedback is available through The service maintenance window is on the fourth Monday of every month between 4 and 6 PM (EET). During that time, the service will be out of use.
IDA is a storage service for research data provided by the Ministry of Education and Culture to actors in the Finnish research system. The service is produced by CSC – IT Center for Science (CSC). IDA enables the safe storage of research datasets and related metadata. Access to the data may be granted within the research project or for a wider group of users. The service is intended for stable research data, both raw data and processed datasets. Owners of the data decide on the openness and usage policies for their own data. The service is not intended for data containing sensitive personal data. The data stored in the service must be connected to a research project. The person responsible for the project acts as a contact person towards the service provider and decides who can access the data in the project. Users may belong to one or more projects. Data stored in IDA is checked for viruses and integrity upon receipt. Data is automatically copied and the integrity of both the original files and copies is monitored. The service is offered to Finnish universities and polytechnics as well as projects and researchers funded by the Academy of Finland.

GeneWeaver combines cross-species data and gene entity integration, scalable hierarchical analysis of user data with a community-built and curated data archive of gene sets and gene networks, and tools for data driven comparison of user-defined biological, behavioral and disease concepts. Gene Weaver allows users to integrate gene sets across species, tissue and experimental platform. It differs from conventional gene set over-representation analysis tools in that it allows users to evaluate intersections among all combinations of a collection of gene sets, including, but not limited to annotations to controlled vocabularies. There are numerous applications of this approach. Sets can be stored, shared and compared privately, among user defined groups of investigators, and across all users.
Additionally to the institutional repository, current St. Edward's faculty have the option of uploading their work directly to their own SEU accounts on Projects created on Figshare will automatically be published on this website as well. For more information, please see documentation
