DataverseNO is CoreTrustSeal certified

On March 26, DataverseNO was informed that the Board of CoreTrustSeal had approved our application for CoreTrustSeal certification. The CoreTrustSeal is a quality seal of approval for sustainable and trustworthy research data repositories.

DataverseNO ( and is a national, generic repository for open research data that is currently used by 9 universities and university colleges in Norway, and the certification covers all institutional collections in the repository.

This is a milestone for DataverseNO, and we are very pleased to be able to offer a certified repository to our partner institutions, says Johanne Raade, library director at UiT The Arctic University of Norway, and chair of DataverseNO board.

Through the CoreTrustSeal certification, data repositories demonstrate that they meet a number of requirements for both technical infrastructure and stewardship model and routines. In total, 15 qualification requirements are included in the CoreTrustSeal certification, and DataverseNO meets 14 of them at the highest level (“The guideline has been fully implemented in the repository”). As part of the certification process, we have developed a comprehensive set of guidelines for the repository, the DataverseNO Policy Framework.

We are looking forward to continuing the good work of DataverseNO together with our partner institutions and to further developing the repository so that we at any time can provide Norwegian researchers with an infrastructure that supports them in making their research data as FAIR as possible.
