What is TiU Dataverse?
Importance of the quality mark for the university
CoreTrustSeal is an international quality mark for data repositories that stands for sustainability, reliability, and accessibility. The CoreTrustSeal review process assesses compliance with sixteen requirements related to organisational governance, data management and technical infrastructure. The quality mark guarantees that the data in Tilburg University Dataverse are stored safely and sustainably, and that they have been assessed on a number of quality criteria. The CoreTrustSeal recertification process takes place every three years, ensuring that the repository remains up to date with the latest standards and practices. By obtaining the CoreTrustSeal, TiU Dataverse is a so-called Trusted Digital Repository (TDR). This means that, when researchers deposit their data in TiU Dataverse, they comply with the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) and the requirements of national and international grant providers.
A total of 13 CoreTrustSeals have been awarded in the Netherlands. Tilburg University Dataverse is the first institution of the 17 partner institutions within the Dutch Dataverse network (DataverseNL) to obtain the quality mark.
