Dear Colleagues,

The Registry of Research Data Repositories - re3data [1] provides 
detailed descriptions of more than 2600 repositories. These descriptions 
can be accessed via the re3data API [2].

As part of the re3data COREF project [3], two Jupyter notebooks have 
been set up to provide examples of how to use the re3data API. The 
examples are implemented in R [4]. Jupyter Notebooks [5] are web-based 
interactive work environments that combine executable code and Markdown 
text. The provided notebooks outline the use case and each step in the 
process of data collection, processing, and visualization. They have 
been designed to be adaptable to other use cases as well.

Currently, the following two use cases are available:

    1. Identify research data repositories for the medical research
    community and enrich the list with additional information.

    2. Analyze the certification of repositories by type (disciplinary /
    institutional / other).

More information can be found in the re3data COREF project blog: 

If you have any questions or are interested in other use case not 
covered, please feel free to contact me and the re3data COREF team:

With best regards
Nina Weisweiler
