Research Data Australia, the flagship service of the Australian National Data Service (ANDS), provides a comprehensive window into the Australian Research Data Commons.
Research Data Australia is an internet-based discovery service designed to provide rich connections between data, projects, researchers and institutions, and promote visibility of Australian research data collections in search engines.
ANDS is partnering with research institutions and data producing agencies to bring about four transformations to data – unmanaged to managed, disconnected to connected, invisible to findable and single use to reusable – that will enable Australia’s research data to become a national strategic resource to support better, more efficient and defensible research, and improved policy input.
ANDS has some 55,000 records from agriculture, chemical sciences, and economics to tourism, history and much more.
ANDS is funded by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) and the Education Investment Fund (EIF) Super Science Initiative.
