OstData is designed as a central service for research data in the field of East European Studies. It is to be established by five German Research Institutions with considerable experience in the area. OstData is conceived as a network with a modular interconnected architecture including a central search platform which will allow depositing, archiving and publication of research data as well as their locating, reusage and citation by fellow scholars. OstData also comprises guidance and counselling services for the scientific community.
The main challenges of OstData are data curation, maintenance and accessibility of research data generated under strongly diverging institutional conditions. Accordingly, OstData’s structure will combine centralized and decentralized models of data management, preservation and quality control. Furthermore, OstData will offer a central search index based on specific metadata which will provide sophisticated search options appropriate to the special character of research data. OstData will increase the international visibility of German research on Eastern Europe by integrating the metadata (and where possible full texts) into international search tools and applications.
In order for the new infrastructure to be acknowledged and used by scholars and scientific institutions throughout Germany, specific supporting measures to assist the development of research data management play an important role in the project.
