Zenodo’s Open Repository Streamlines Sharing Science - SPARC

"A decade ago, the scientific community recognized that to move from open access to open science, there was a need for free unrestricted access to scientific knowledge. This meant valuing, sharing and preserving data, software and other digital artifacts from research, but the on-ramp to participate had to be faster and simpler if the practice was going to gain traction. The European Union decided to fund CERN (the European Organisation for Nuclear Research) through the OpenAIRE project to build a catch-all repository to ensure all researchers had a place to easily upload software, data, preprints and other digital outputs. That was the beginning of Zenodo, which CERN and OpenAIRE launched in 2013. Since, the free global platform has expanded faster than imagined. It now has 25 million visits a year, hosts 3+ million uploads and over 1 petabyte of data. This year marks the platform’s 10th anniversary and today Zenodo is widely viewed as a trusted place to preserve research materials that could be of use to others in advancing science...."
