ScienceDB is a generalist data repository that publishes datasets in all formats generated from a full spectrum of disciplinary fields. We do, however, have a preferred list of data formats for optimizing data accessibility. We provide two options for data access in the data submission phase, open access or embargo. Please note that the embargoed data will turn to open access after the end date set by the depositors. It means that all the data submitted to ScienceDB will finally open to the public.
All open data published on ScienceDB conform to schema.org standards, possessing well discoverability and machine-readability.
