A number of tools that can help you manage your research data throughout the research lifecycle:
re3data.org a research data repository. A research data repository is a subtype of a sustainable information infrastructure which provides long-term storage and access to research data that is the basis for a scholarly publication. Research data means information objects generated by scholarly projects for example through experiments, measurements, surveys or interviews.
A research data repository listed in re3data.org is either: a data provider if it offers research data and its metadata (ideally exposing metadata via interfaces), a service provider (e.g. a portal) if it harvests the metadata of research data from data providers as a basis for building value-added services.
EDI is actively promoting and enabling curation and re-use of environmental data. They assist researchers from field stations, individual laboratories, and research projects of all sizes to archive and publish their environmental data. EDI is committed to enable data that is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR). They provide support, training, and resources to help archive and publish high-quality data and metadata. They operate a secure data repository and work closely with the LTER Network Communications Office and DataONE to promote data management best practices and stewardship. Their team consists of highly motivated and experienced data practitioners, software developers, and research scientists. ezEML is a form-based online application designed to streamline the creation of metadata in the Ecological Metadata Language (EML).
figshare is a repository where users can make all of their research outputs available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner. figshare allows users to upload any file format to be previewed in the browser so that any research output, from posters and presentations to datasets and code, can be disseminated in a way that the current scholarly publishing model does not allow. figshare features aim to help you organize your research and get as much impact for it as possible, without adding time or effort to your day.
The Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) is an open, networked community that brings together science, data and information technology practitioners. ESIP’s mission is to support the networking and data dissemination needs of the global community by linking observation, research, application, education and the ultimate use of Earth science. You can participate resolving issues of common interest in this intellectual commons for Earth science data in a number of collaboration areas ranging from environmental sensing to energy and climate.
