About this repository

data_UMR is the institutional repository of Philipps-Universität Marburg for research data that originated or was processed at Philipps-Universität. Research data and descriptive metadata can be stored in a structured way and kept for a long time (at least 10 years). In addition, publications can be made findable worldwide by assigning a DOI. In addition, access and subsequent use can be regulated by assigning rights and licenses. data_UMR is operated jointly by the University Library and the University Computer Center .

The technical basis is the open source repository software DSpace . It is one of the most widely used repository softwares worldwide and is maintained and further developed by a large, international community. The software has been adapted for use at Philipps-Universität Marburg by the University Computer Center and the University Library.

Adaptations and further developments are jointly discussed, processed and reused in the context of the state project Hessian Research Data Infrastructure (HeFDI). Likewise, the metadata used in the repository is based on a standard developed and used in HeFDI, which is based on recommendations from DataCite (Institute for DOI Registration) and DINI (German Initiative for Network Information e.V.). The aim of the cooperation in the development and operation of the repository is to achieve maximum interoperability and avoid isolated solutions within Hesse.
