Linking community and technology to enable FAIR data
Good research requires responsible data management.
In short, data management can be defined as the creation, storage, maintenance, disclosure, archiving and sustainable preservation of research data. Not only would it be terrible if all your important research data would be lost. And not only can you save a lot of time if you can retrieve your data more easy. But if we can connect data sets, we can see the bigger picture, find solutions that cannot be found in specialized areas alone. Innovation happens where disciplines meet. The innovative power of research depends on our ability to connect datasets.
DataHub offers the tools and services to help you with this.
Data catalogue DISQOVER enriched with COVID-19 data (please use VPN)
We are happy to announce that COVID-19 data is now available in our local DataHub DISQOVER instance. The collective worldwide knowledge about the COVID-19 virus and how to mitigate it is growing every day. Therefore ONTOFORCE, the provider of DISQOVER, has launched a beta release of DISQOVER COVID-19 Edition, a coronavirus-specific edition that aims to improve the organisation, integration and accessibility of rapidly evolving information related to the COVID-19 pandemic. DataHub worked hard, together with ONTOFORCE, to integrate the COVID-19 data into our local DISQOVER instance, so you can now search across linked COVID-19 data yourself.
Up-to-date information related to COVID-19 research
Updated daily, the DISQOVER COVID-19 Edition brings together siloed knowledge as it emerges around the world into one place. As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds it can become a full-time job just to keep up with the latest developments, and the risk of making decisions on poor, out-of-date or incomplete information creates more uncertainty in an already uncertain world.
Start your search across linked COVID-19 data
DISQOVER is ideally suited to integrate accurate up-to-date information related to COVID-19 from around the world. You can simply access our local DISQOVER instance online. Login to the DataHub DISQOVER system with your institutional account. You can start your search by simply entering free-text keywords or choosing one of the displayed data categories. You will find the COVID-19 data in the COVID specific categories (COVID publications, COVID patents and COVID clinical trials).

About DataHubAt DataHub, we provide data management services for (non-) clinical studies. DataHub is an institutional data broker that provides data management services to researchers from the academic hospital and university. Our cross-organisational infrastructure enables researchers from multiple disciplines to reuse valuable data from the hospital, the university, and beyond. DataHub works according to the FAIR principles, which specify that data and metadata should be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. We continuously improve our services in order to provide added value to researchers who want to do more with their data.
The development of the DataHub system until May 2020
