Opportunities for Sharing Resources Among Research Data Repositories

Downs, Robert R.; Lehnert, Kerstin A.

Sharing information, knowledge, technology, and services improves capabilities to facilitate open science through open data. Opportunities for resource sharing are enabled through various kinds of relationships. Resource sharing among data repositories addresses mutual needs, science demands, project goals, organizational objectives, as well as other conditions. Some data curation services that benefit from resource sharing include repository services, system services, data services, review services, and organizational services. Developing and distributing open source software products and repository platforms also fosters sharing among data repositories. These issues and opportunities for data sharing, along with examples, are discussed.
