re3data Call for Editorial Board

The registry has been in operation for over 10 years and provides a curated index of over 3,000 research data repositories around the world from all disciplines.

New repositories are identified and reviewed by an international editorial board who bring different subject, language, and cultural backgrounds to catalog and represent a diverse and ever-growing data repository landscape. The editorial board also maintains re3data’s Metadata Schema for the Description of Research Data Repositories.

The editorial board is seeking to expand, in particular, to include editors from countries and disciplines where we have gaps in language, subject expertise, and representation.

Editors serve 4-year terms and meet virtually 2-3 times a year with most of our work conducted via email. A travel stipend will be provided for a meeting planned in person for June 2024 in Karlsruhe, Germany.

If you are interested in serving, please consult the editorial board’s terms of reference and apply before March 31.
