Edmond, the now well-established open research data repository of the Max Planck Society, continues to grow steadily: the number of data collections increases on average weekly, recently almost daily. The number of Max Planck Institutes using Edmond also keeps increasing; currently there are 33 MPIs represented.

In mid-2019 we started to make a series of intensive improvements to our repository. This process has now been completed.
Changes include, for example, the linking of records to other sources, optimized data documentation (addition of further metadata fields) and improved search functions. It is now also possible to reserve a DOI for (as yet) unpublished data collections. The strong demand of the professional community for this possibility has accompanied us for quite some time now. This is all the more reason for us to be pleased to facilitate the excellent work of our scientists even more. We also increased the default disk quota per user to 10GB, more is always available This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Despite or even because of all the innovations: Edmond remains user-friendly as before.
