DBRepo: A Database Repository to Support Research¶
Digital repositories see themselves more frequently encountered with the problem of making databases accessible in their collection. Challenges revolve around organizing, searching and retrieving content stored within databases and constitute a major technical burden as their internal representation greatly differs from static documents most digital repositories are designed for.
We present a database repository system that allows researchers to ingest data into a central, versioned repository through common interfaces, provides efficient access to arbitrary subsets of data even when the underlying data store is evolving, allows reproducing of query results and supports findable-, accessible-, interoperable- and reusable data.
