The domain of the IDS repository is the German language, mainly in its current form (contemporary New High German). Its designated community are national and international researchers in German and general linguistics. As an institutional repository, the repository provides long term archival of two important IDS projects: the Deutsches Referenzkorpus (‘German Reference Corpus’, DeReKo), which curates a large corpus of written German language, and the Archiv für Gesprochenes Deutsch (‘Archive of Spoken German’, AGD), which curates several corpora of spoken German. In addition, the repository enables germanistic researchers from IDS and from other research facilities and universities to deposit their research data for long term archival of data and metadata arising from research projects.
The German National Library offers free access to its bibliographic data and several collections of digital objects. As the central access point for presenting, accessing and reusing digital resources, DNBLab allows users to access our data, object files and full texts. The access is available by download and through various interfaces.
The "Database for Spoken German (DGD)" is a corpus management system in the program area Oral Corpora of the Institute for German Language (IDS). It has been online since the beginning of 2012 and since mid-2014 replaces the spoken German database, which was developed in the "Deutsches Spracharchiv (DSAv)" of the IDS. After single registration, the DGD offers external users a web-based access to selected parts of the collection of the "Archive Spoken German (AGD)" for use in research and teaching. The selection of the data for external use depends on the consent of the respective data provider, who in turn must have the appropriate usage and exploitation rights. Also relevant to the selection are certain protection needs of the archive. The Archive for Spoken German (AGD) collects and archives data of spoken German in interactions (conversation corpora) and data of domestic and non-domestic varieties of German (variation corpora). Currently, the AGD hosts around 50 corpora comprising more than 15000 audio and 500 video recordings amounting to around 5000 hours of recorded material with more than 7000 transcripts. With the Research and Teaching Corpus of Spoken German (FOLK) the AGD is also compiling an extensive German conversation corpus of its own. !!! Access to data of Datenbank Gesprochenes Deutsch (DGD) is also provided by: IDS Repository !!!
The repository is part of the National Research Data Infrastructure initiative Text+, in which the University of Tübingen is a partner. It is housed at the Department of General and Computational Linguistics. The infrastructure is maintained in close cooperation with the Digital Humanities Centre, which is a core facility of the university, colaborating with the library and computing center of the university. Integration of the repository into the national CLARIN-D and international CLARIN infrastructures gives it wide exposure, increasing the likelihood that the resources will be used and further developed beyond the lifetime of the projects in which they were developed. Among the resources currently available in the Tübingen Center Repository, researchers can find widely used treebanks of German (e.g. TüBa-D/Z), the German wordnet (GermaNet), the first manually annotated digital treebank (Index Thomisticus), as well as descriptions of the tools used by the WebLicht ecosystem for natural language processing.
The German Text Archive (Deutsches Textarchiv, DTA) presents online a selection of key German-language works in various disciplines from the 17th to 19th centuries. The electronic full-texts are indexed linguistically and the search facilities tolerate a range of spelling variants. The DTA presents German-language printed works from around 1650 to 1900 as full text and as digital facsimile. The selection of texts was made on the basis of lexicographical criteria and includes scientific or scholarly texts, texts from everyday life, and literary works. The digitalisation was made from the first edition of each work. Using the digital images of these editions, the text was first typed up manually twice (‘double keying’). To represent the structure of the text, the electronic full-text was encoded in conformity with the XML standard TEI P5. The next stages complete the linguistic analysis, i.e. the text is tokenised, lemmatised, and the parts of speech are annotated. The DTA thus presents a linguistically analysed, historical full-text corpus, available for a range of questions in corpus linguistics. Thanks to the interdisciplinary nature of the DTA Corpus, it also offers valuable source-texts for neighbouring disciplines in the humanities, and for scientists, legal scholars and economists.
The project brings together national key players providing environmentally related biological data and services to develop the ‘German Federation for Biological Data' (GFBio). The overall goal is to provide a sustainable, service oriented, national data infrastructure facilitating data sharing and stimulating data intensive science in the fields of biological and environmental research.
The Bavarian Archive for Speech Signals (BAS) is a public institution hosted by the University of Munich. This institution was founded with the aim of making corpora of current spoken German available to both the basic research and the speech technology communities via a maximally comprehensive digital speech-signal database. The speech material will be structured in a manner allowing flexible and precise access, with acoustic-phonetic and linguistic-phonetic evaluation forming an integral part of it.

The Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW) is a CLARIN partner institution and has been an officially certified CLARIN service center since June 20th, 2013. The CLARIN center at the BBAW focuses on historical text corpora (predominantly provided by the 'Deutsches Textarchiv'/German Text Archive, DTA) as well as on lexical resources (e.g. dictionaries provided by the 'Digitales Wörterbuch der Deutschen Sprache'/Digital Dictionary of the German Language, DWDS).
The repository of the Hamburg Centre for Speech Corpora is used for archiving, maintenance, distribution and development of spoken language corpora. These usually consist of audio and / or video recordings, transcriptions and other data and structured metadata. The corpora treat the focus on multilingualism and are generally freely available for research and teaching. Most of the measures maintained by the HZSK corpora were created in the years 2000-2011 in the framework of the SFB 538 "Multilingualism" at the University of Hamburg. The HZSK however also strives to take linguistic data from other projects or contexts, and to provide also the scientific community for research and teaching are available, provided that they are compatible with the current focus of HZSK, ie especially spoken language and multilingualism.

The project is set up in order to improve the infrastructure for text-based linguistic research and development by building a huge, automatically annotated German text corpus and the corresponding tools for corpus annotation and exploitation. DeReKo constitutes the largest linguistically motivated collection of contemporary German texts, contains fictional, scientific and newspaper texts, as well as several other text types, contains only licenced texts, is encoded with rich meta-textual information, is fully annotated morphosyntactically (three concurrent annotations), is continually expanded, with a focus on size and stratification of data, may be analyzed free of charge via the query system COSMAS II, serves as a 'primordial sample' from which users may draw specialized sub-samples (socalled 'virtual corpora') to represent the language domain they wish to investigate. !!! Access to data of Das Deutsche Referenzkorpus is also provided by: IDS Repository !!!
BExIS is the online data repository and information system of the Biodiversity Exploratories Project (BE). The BE is a German network of biodiversity related working groups from areas such as vegetation and soil science, zoology and forestry. Up to three years after data acquisition, the data use is restricted to members of the BE. Thereafter, the data is usually public available (
The speaking language atlas gives a multimedia impression of the dialects of the state Baden-Württemberg in Germany. The maps of the Speaking Language Atlas of Baden-Württemberg are based on two databases: Südwestdeutschen Sprachatlas (SSA) and the Sprachatlas von Nord Baden-Württemberg (SNBW). The dialect recordings that form the basis for the maps were carried out at the SSA between 1974 and 1986, but at the SNBW between 2009 and 2012. For the southern part, this means that the maps may present a state of affairs that is no longer valid today.
This project is an open invitation to anyone and everyone to participate in a decentralized effort to explore the opportunities of open science in neuroimaging. We aim to document how much (scientific) value can be generated from a data release — from the publication of scientific findings derived from this dataset, algorithms and methods evaluated on this dataset, and/or extensions of this dataset by acquisition and incorporation of new data. The project involves the processing of acoustic stimuli. In this study, the scientists have demonstrated an audiodescription of classic "Forrest Gump" to subjects, while researchers using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) have captured the brain activity of test candidates in the processing of language, music, emotions, memories and pictorial representations.In collaboration with various labs in Magdeburg we acquired and published what is probably the most comprehensive sample of brain activation patterns of natural language processing. Volunteers listened to a two-hour audio movie version of the Hollywood feature film "Forrest Gump" in a 7T MRI scanner. High-resolution brain activation patterns and physiological measurements were recorded continuously. These data have been placed into the public domain, and are freely available to the scientific community and the general public.
media/rep/ is the disciplinary repository for German-language media studies. It offers free and open access to publications and research data in media studies and related disciplines.
The CLARIN-D Centre CEDIFOR provides a repository for long-term storage of resources and meta-data.

This includes software and web-services as well as corpora of text, lexicons, images and other data.
The Bavarian Natural History Collections (Staatliche Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen Bayerns, SNSB) are a research institution for natural history in Bavaria. They encompass five State Collections (zoology, botany, paleontology and geology, mineralogy, anthropology and paleoanatomy), the Botanical Garden Munich-Nymphenburg and eight museums with public exhibitions in Munich, Bamberg, Bayreuth, Eichstätt and Nördlingen. Our research focuses mainly on the past and present bio- and geodiversity and the evolution of animals and plants. To achieve this we have large scientific collections (almost 35,000,000 specimens), see "joint projects".
As Germany’s first disciplinary repository in the field of international and interdisciplinary legal scholarship <intR>²Dok offers to all academic scholars currently affiliated with a university, college or research institute the opportunity to self-archive their quality-assured research data, research papers, pre-prints and previously published articles by means of open access. The disciplinary repository <intR>²Dok is a service offer provided by the Scientific Information Service for International and Interdisciplinary Legal Research (Fachinformationsdienst für internationale und interdisziplinäre Rechtsforschung) established at Berlin State Library (Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin) and funded by the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft).
The focus of PolMine is on texts published by public institutions in Germany. Corpora of parliamentary protocols are at the heart of the project: Parliamentary proceedings are available for long stretches of time, cover a broad set of public policies and are in the public domain, making them a valuable text resource for political science. The project develops repositories of textual data in a sustainable fashion to suit the research needs of political science. Concerning data, the focus is on converting text issued by public institutions into a sustainable digital format (TEI/XML).

The Animal Sound Archive at the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin is one of the oldest and largest collections of animal sounds. Presently, the collection consists of about 120,000 bioacoustical recordings comprising almost all groups of animals: 1.800 bird species 580 mammalian species more then150 species of invertebrates; some fishes, amphibians and reptiles
Morph·D·Base has been developed to serve scientific research and education. It provides a platform for storing the detailed documentation of all material, methods, procedures, and concepts applied, together with the specific parameters, values, techniques, and instruments used during morphological data production. In other words, it's purpose is to provide a publicly available resource for recording and documenting morphological metadata. Moreover, it is also a repository for different types of media files that can be uploaded in order to serve as support and empirical substantiation of the results of morphological investigations. Our long-term perspective with Morph·D·Base is to provide an instrument that will enable a highly formalized and standardized way of generating morphological descriptions using a morphological ontology that will be based on the web ontology language (OWL - This, however, represents a project that is still in development.
aviDa is the RDC for audio-visual data of empirical qualitative social research at the Department of General Sociology at the Technische Universität Berlin, developed in cooperation between the Technische Universität Berlin and the University of Bayreuth. aviDa aims at opening and sharing videographic research data since 2018.
This repository contains about 500 medieval codices and manuscripts (dated from 8th to 18th century), which were a part of the BMBF-funded project eCodicology. The collection and database contains descriptional data about the manuscripts in TEI conformant XML format as well as digitized images of every codex page.
When published in 2005, the Millennium Run was the largest ever simulation of the formation of structure within the ΛCDM cosmology. It uses 10(10) particles to follow the dark matter distribution in a cubic region 500h(−1)Mpc on a side, and has a spatial resolution of 5h−1kpc. Application of simplified modelling techniques to the stored output of this calculation allows the formation and evolution of the ~10(7) galaxies more luminous than the Small Magellanic Cloud to be simulated for a variety of assumptions about the detailed physics involved. As part of the activities of the German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory we have created relational databases to store the detailed assembly histories both of all the haloes and subhaloes resolved by the simulation, and of all the galaxies that form within these structures for two independent models of the galaxy formation physics. We have implemented a Structured Query Language (SQL) server on these databases. This allows easy access to many properties of the galaxies and halos, as well as to the spatial and temporal relations between them. Information is output in table format compatible with standard Virtual Observatory tools. With this announcement (from 1/8/2006) we are making these structures fully accessible to all users. Interested scientists can learn SQL and test queries on a small, openly accessible version of the Millennium Run (with volume 1/512 that of the full simulation). They can then request accounts to run similar queries on the databases for the full simulations. In 2008 and 2012 the simulations were repeated.
