Report on Business Models for Sustainable Research Data Repositories (OECD & CODATA, 2017)

On 11 December 2017, the OECD released an OECD Global Science Forum and CODATA Report on Business Models for Sustainable Research Data Repositories 

  • Keywords: Open science, Research, Data, Business models, Repositories, Sustainability, Open Data

There is a large variety of repositories that are responsible for providing long term access to data that is used for research. 

As data volumes and the demands for more open access to this data increase, these repositories are coming under increasing financial pressures that can undermine their long-term sustainability.

This report explores the income streams, costs, value propositions, and business models for 48 research data repositories.

It includes a set of recommendations designed to provide a framework for developing sustainable business models and to assist policy makers and funders in supporting repositories with a balance of policy regulation and incentives.
