The Data Repositories In Agriculture. A Preliminary Investigation
The primordial role of agriculture in the existence and future of humankind is clearly represented in the sustainable developmental goals (SDG) defined by the United Nations. A large amount of data is generated in agricultural research. However, it is still unknown if this data complies with the FAIR principles for scientific data management. This study aims at investigating the status quo of the data repositories in agriculture in terms of its data findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability. For this, a search strategy that includes the application of multiple filters has been executed to obtain a simplified list of data repositories. The most frequent keywords contained in data repositories within the main fields of agriculture were used to obtain a reduced list of repositories devoted the agricultural data.
