Welcome to MADATA

Welcome to the Research Data Repository of the University of Mannheim.

This service invites all researchers and faculty of the University of Mannheim to submit their research data and to make it accessible through the internet for reference and further investigation.

It is the aim of MADATA to contribute to the quality to academic research by making research data accessible and to provide the basis for transparency and reproducibility of academic research and to satisfy expectations of the academic community, including funding bodies.

  1. DOIs for research data;
  2. OAI-PMH interface for metadata harvesting;
  3. SPARQL endpoint for MADATA-subset at Wikidata for interoperability;
  4. Python tool madata for accessing and reusing the MADATA metadata;
  5. advising the use of non-propriatary file formats;
  6. reviewing data documentation for ensuring reusability;
  7. facilitating the accessibility of data by providing storage space to share Research Data openly.
