Dryad is an international repository of data underlying peer-reviewed articles in the basic and applied biosciences. Dryad enables scientists to validate published findings, explore new analysis methodologies, repurpose data for research questions unanticipated by the original authors, and perform synthetic studies. Dryad is governed by a consortium of journals that collaboratively promote data archiving and ensure the sustainability of the repository.
As of Jul 26, 2012, Dryad contains 1850 data packages and 4828 data files, associated with articles in 143 journals.
Data Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) is the foundation of new innovative environmental science through a distributed framework and sustainable cyberinfrastructure that meets the needs of science and society for open, persistent, robust, and secure access to well-described and easily discovered Earth observational data. Supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation (Grant #OCI-0830944) as one of the initial DataNets, DataONE will ensure the preservation, access, use and reuse of multi-scale, multi-discipline, and multi-national science data via three principle cyberinfrastucture elements and a broad education and outreach program.
DataONE mission: Enable new science and knowledge creation through universal access to data about life on earth and the environment that sustains it.
DataONE vision: DataONE will be commonly used by researchers, educators, and the public to better understand and conserve life on earth and the environment that sustains it.
This list is a working document, initiated via a collaboration between the British Library, BioMed Central and the Digital Curation Centre, that aims to capture the growing number of repositories for research data. It is provided for information purposes only: DataCite provides no endorsements as to the quality or suitability of the repositories listed.

Science and Engineering Societies
Marine Technology Society
The Marine Technology Society was incorporated in June 1963 to give members of academia, government and industry a common forum for the exchange of information and ideas. Today, MTS is a growing organization, boasting a membership of businesses, institutions, individual professionals and students who are ocean engineers, technologists, policy makers and educators.
The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers
The mission of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers is to advance the art, science and practice of naval architecture, marine engineering, ocean engineering and other marine-related professions.
