re3data.org: new repositories and functionalities 

We've been busy during the summertime. The number of indexed research data 
repositories has grown significantly. Currently re3data.org lists 611 
research data repositories. 398 of these are described in detail using the 
re3data.org vocabulary [1].

We've also improved the functionalities and the design of the registry. It's 
now possible to browse through the indexed data repositories (1. by subject, 
2. by content type and 3. by country): http://www.re3data.org/browse/

Furthermore we re-designed the detail view of a repository by splitting all 
information into the following categories: general, institutions, policies 
and miscellaneous. Check out the example of DRYAD: 

Beyond that, re3data.org is now also part of Nature's Scientific Data's 
deposition policy. The policy states that: “We also encourage life science 
and biomedical repositories and communities to register their services and 
reporting standards at BioSharing. Physics, astrophysics, astronomy and 
geoscience databases should be registered with re3data.org.” [2] Currently 
BioSharing and re3data.org are in the process of finalizing an agreement to 
ensure complementarity between their records. BioSharing offers a catalogue 
of databases in the life sciences. These databases are described according to 
the BioDBcore guidelines [3].

re3data.org was mentioned in an report on “Open Data Access Policies and 
Strategies in the European Research Area and Beyond” for the European 
Commission [4]. Furthermore re3data.org was referenced in journal policies 
(e.g. Copernicus Publications) [5] and repository guidelines (e.g. PREPARDE) 

We are happy to see that re3data.org is on its way to become the useful tool 
for researchers, research data repository operators, publishers and funders, 
that we planned it to be. We’re not finished yet and will continue to improve 
our registry also thanks to your feedback that is more appreciated than ever.
