RDA Domain Repositories Interest Group

The Domain Repositories Interest Group will bring together active data repositories that serve specific scientific disciplines.  Domain repositories provide archiving services tailored to the needs of scientific communities, and they mediate between domain scientists and rapid changes in information and data science.  All domain repositories have shared interests in data curation, dissemination, preservation, and institutional sustainability, and this interest group will provide a forum for sharing practical experience and developing joint projects.  The IG will also develop training and mentoring relationships for new and emerging repositories.

The Domain Repositories IG will enhance communication with other RDA IGs and WGs and represent the interests of domain repositories in those groups.  Members of this IG participate in many other RDA venues, like the Data Citation WG, Metadata IG, and RDA/WDS Certification of Digital Repositories IG.  The Domain Repository IG will provide a venue in which repositories can identify and prioritize common problems for action by working groups at RDA and other organizations.

Chairs:

Kerstin Lehnert, Interdisciplinary Earth Data Alliance

Peter Doorn, Data Archiving and Networked Services

Data Usage Metrics Survey for Repositories

Hi all,

Following our RDA Data Usage Metrics WG meeting in Botswana and two virtual calls since, we have put together a survey for repositories on data metrics implementations. If you are a repository provider, could you please fill out this survey? 

https://goo.gl/forms/yS3NigmBJSabi5Ux2

Please help us spread the survey (through our channels, other WGs, twitter, etc) – the more responses we get the richer data we will have for our Philly meeting and the WG deliverables!
