CoreTrustSeal is also investigating how the organization can support other repositories, in addition to the traditional focus on disciplinary and domain repositories, such as more generalist repositories or ‘technical repository service providers’. Feedback can be submitted until July 17, 2020. Discussions on the topic will continue beyond this deadline.
CoreTrustSeal is a certification organization, launched by the World Data System of the International Science Council (WDS) and the Data Seal of Approval (DSA)
CoreTrustSeal offers to any interested data repository a core-level certification based on the DSA–WDS Core Trustworthy Data Repositories Requirements catalogue and procedures. This universal catalogue of requirements reflects the core characteristics of trustworthy data repositories and is the culmination of a cooperative effort between DSA and WDS under the umbrella of the Research Data Alliance to merge their data repositories certifications.
