Through this section, you will be able to a brief description of the data storage services being provided by PaNOSC.
Each of the PaNOSC partners is committed to storing raw data produced by users at the research facilities and making it available as Open Data once the embargo period is over. Users can browse, download and store data at the following repositories:
- ILL – https://data.ill.eu
- ESRF – https://data.esrf.fr/
- EuXFEL – https://in.xfel.eu/metadata
- ESS – https://scicat.ess.eu/
- CERIC-ERIC – https://vuo.elettra.trieste.it/pls/vuo/open_access_data_portal.show_search
Digital Object Identifiers
The PaNOSC partners offer Digital Object Identifiers for raw and processed data. These can be generated automatically for the data generated during the beam time or manually for a subset of the data which are referenced by a publication. Users are requested to contact the local data managers at each institute on how to reference the DOIs and or create new DOIs. Journals require DOIs for data to be included in publications. PaNOSC strongly encourages scientists to reference DOIs in their publications. An educational campaign to encourage and increase the use of DOIs was co-sponsored by PaNOSC (see DOI for Data).
Each PaNOSC partner offers long term archiving facilities for storing curated data for 10 years or more. This service is made available via the local data catalogues. The long term storage capacity varies from a few to many petabytes.
As part of the PaNOSC project a significant amount of cold storage (i.e. on tape) is available for the project. Please contact the WP6 leader for more information.
COVID-19 Open Data
PaNOSC partners support making COVID-19 data available as Open Data. Most of them have signed the COVID-19 manifesto to provide COVID-19 related data without restrictions as soon as possible. The project encourages COVID-19 data to be registered in the EU COVID-19 data portal: https://www.covid19dataportal.org/
