  "abstract": "<p>The General Repository Comparison Chart and FAIRsharing Collection (<a href=\"https://fairsharing.org/collection/GeneralRepositoryComparison\">https://fairsharing.org/collection/GeneralRepositoryComparison</a>)&nbsp;is an outcome of the NIH Workshop on the Role of Generalist Repositories to Enhance Data Discoverability and Reuse held 11-12 February 2020 (<a href=\"https://datascience.nih.gov/data-ecosystem/NIH-data-repository-workshop-summary\">workshop summary</a>).&nbsp; Following the workshop, representatives of the participating generalist repositories collaborated to develop a tool researchers could use to make decisions about selecting a general repository. We intend for the content to be dynamically updated through our partnership with <a href=\"https://fairsharing.org/\">FAIRsharing</a>.&nbsp; As we work towards that goal, we currently have a static version of the comparison.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>It is important to state that researchers should first determine if an appropriate domain repository exists for their research data.&nbsp; Tools such as FAIRsharing.org and re3data.org can help with this determination. If using a domain repository is not possible, then a researcher should review both the general repository chart and consider their own institutional repository as a possible location to store their data.&nbsp; Researchers need to comply with the requirements of their community, funder, country, publisher, and possibly others to ensure the best repository is selected.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p><br>\nFor those interested in continuing the discussion on the role of generalist repositories to enhance data discoverability and reuse, please consider joining the Research Data Alliance (RDA)&nbsp;and particularly the joint RDA/Force11 FAIRsharing WG (<a href=\"https://www.rd-alliance.org/group/fairsharing-registry-connecting-data-policies-standards-databases.html\">https://www.rd-alliance.org/group/fairsharing-registry-connecting-data-policies-standards-databases.html</a>).&nbsp; There is now an RDA Community to support conversation and a mailing list you join (<a href=\"https://www.rd-alliance.org/groups/generalist-repository-comparison-chart-management-group\">https://www.rd-alliance.org/groups/generalist-repository-comparison-chart-management-group</a>).&nbsp; Watch for relevant sessions in the upcoming plenaries.</p>",
