Searching for open data

WHERE CAN YOU SEARCH FOR OPEN RESEARCH DATA?
Depending on where it was uploaded, open research data can be found in a data repository, special data journal, or as a supplement to a journal article.

If the research data has been made available through a repository with long-term storage and the data includes reliable metadata, others are able to search for, find and reuse the data. Furthermore, if the dataset has been provided with a unique ID, a so-called ‘persistent identifier’ (PID) such as a DOI (digital object identifier), the data is also citable.
