Data repositories - Open Access Directory
From Open Access Directory This list is part of the Open Access Directory. This is a list of repositories and databases for open data. Please annotate the entries to indicate the hosting organization, scope, licensing, and usage restrictions (if any). If a repository is open in some respects but not others, please include it with an annotation rather than exclude it. If you're not sure whether a given dataset or data collection is open, post your query to Is It Open Data? Archaeology Also see Social sciences. Astronomy Also see Physics.

SSRN To Share or not to Share? That is the (Research Data) Question… While public access to research articles is a fact of life for much of the scholarly community, access to research data – while a top priority for many governments and other funders, who see it as the key to future economic growth – remains a challenge. There are many reasons for this, both practical (eg, lack of infrastructure) and professional (eg, lack of credit, getting scooped). The publishing community can and does already help with the former, for example through support for NISO, CrossRef, CODATA, and other organizations and, increasingly, the development of data sharing and management solutions. Earlier this year, in an effort to establish a baseline view of data-sharing practices, attitudes, and motivations globally, across a cross-disciplinary set of researchers, Wiley surveyed around 90,000 recent authors of papers in health, life, physical, and social sciences, and humanities.

Legifrance - Le service public de l'acc?s au droit The goal of the W3C SWEO Linking Open Data community project is to extend the Web with a data commons by publishing various open datasets as RDF on the Web and by setting RDF links between data items from different data sources. Kjetil, I had the good fortune of seeing the site and when I saw an mage, titled "The origin of the world" I knew hackers would take down the site. There is a text on the temporary site" The Europeana site is temporarily not accessible due to overwhelming interest after its launch (10 million hits per hour), which smells of denial of service after a massive attack. The site is part of the Digital Library Project of the European Union. I recommend you check with Jonathan Purday ( go to" and look for semantic web programs and projects.

11. Software Repositories - Adding and Managing Package Repositories 11. Software Repositories As mentioned in the previous chapter, the package manager installs software by fetching packages from software repositories, therefore the software available for easy installation via the package manager depends on the configured repositories. A software repository is a collection of RPM packages (the openSUSE packaging format) and metadata for the available packages. Usually repositories are on online servers, but it can also be on a CD/DVD or on other media. 11.1 Managing Repositories Respositories can be added, removed and configured via YaST, in the module called Software Repositories. 11.1.1 Adding Repositories The official repositories are pre-configured, but many unofficial repositories exist and can be added too. The easiest and safest way to add repositories is using the list of online community repositories in YaST. YaST => Software => Software Repositories => Click on "Add" => Select "Community Repositories" and click "Next" 11.1.2 Recommended Repositories

Welcome to the Registry of Open Access Repositories - Registry of Open Access Repositories Databib | Research Data Repositories World Digital Library Home Les données de la recherche Données brutes, traitées, dérivées ? Une distinction portant, à la fois sur le cycle de vie et la nature des données, s'est imposée progressivement, tout en suscitant de nombreuses questions et des débats entre chercheurs ; il s'agit de la distinction entre données brutes, traitées et dérivées. Les données "brutes" (raw data) correspondraient aux enregistrements directs, factuels, d'une réalité (par exemple, des relevés météorologiques). Mais la notion de donnée brute pose problème, d'abord en SHS, où les données (sociales, économiques, textuelles, etc.), sont toujours le produit d'une construction, d'une problématique de recherche, d'un contexte. En sciences humaines, les données ne sont jamais "brutes", mais bien "données" (voir le billet de Sylvie Fayet). Données ouvertes ? "Une donnée ouverte est une donnée qui peut être librement utilisée, réutilisée et redistribuée par quiconque - sujette seulement, au plus, à une exigence d’attribution et de partage à l’identique."
