Through a collaboration between FAIRsharing, Datacite and a number of journal publishers (PLOS, Springer Nature, F1000, Wiley, Taylor and Francis, Elsevier, EMBO Press, Hindawi, eLife, GigaScience and Cambridge University Press), we have refined a set of criteria that journals and publishers believe are important for the identification and selection of data repositories, which can be recommended to researchers when they are preparing to publish the data underlying their findings.
Find the criteria, the background, and the scope of the work in the draft article entitled 'Data Repository Selection - Criteria That Matter.pdf': http://doi.org/10.17605/OSF.IO/N9QJ7
