With GlobeData, the Leipizg Research Centre Global Dynamics now has its own repository for archiving research data. With this new infrastructure, data and materials collected and created in the projects at ReCentGlobe can be archived. At the same time, it is also open to scholars from all over the world and will systematically collect data on the research foci of the centre and in the field of global and area studies. In this way, ReCentGlobe not only takes into account the demand to organise research data in a subject-related and competent manner, but also to develop thematically relevant data collections across institutions.
Between the publication of research data and closed archiving for review purposes, GlobeData also offers gradual variants such as the targeted release of data for specific individuals or temporal embargos. In this way, the repository meets the special requirements of research data in the humanities and social sciences, especially with regard to possible legal or ethical restrictions on making data available. Ultimately, researchers decide who gets access to their data. All data sets are given a persistent identifier (DOI) so that they can be found and clearly identified in the long term.
The first projects have already archived and/or published research data. You can find the SFB section within the repository here.
