Safeguarding data for future use is critical to the scientific endeavor because it enables verification and replication of results, new research, and continued return on the original investment. In the current data landscape data repositories perform this important role, protecting data and ensuring their usability over time. How can repositories demonstrate their trustworthiness to the community so that their role in data sharing is recognized by stakeholders? Certification enables data repositories to provide evidence of compliance with essential data stewardship responsibilities.
In this session a number of national and international initiatives dealing with certification of data repositories will be presented with an aim to identify common trends and better define the underlying incentives.
