Descriptions: SHERPA/RoMEO and its companion sites make up a useful, frequently-updated reference suite on open-access scholarly publishing and archiving rules for text and data. Specifically, RoMEO is a resource for looking up publishers' copyright policy information; SHERPA/FACT is the Funders' and Authors' Compliance Tool, and SHERPA/JULIET is the resource for information on research funders' (like NIH or National Science Foundation) open-access policies: what may or must be archived in an open-access repository, the stage of publication at which the work may be deposited, and guidelines for when the material must be made publicly available.

Provider: International DOI Foundation
Descriptions: DOI, or Digital Object Identifier, is a standardized system for providing actionable, persistent and interoperable links to "objects," the scope of which was originally limited to online documents, but which term is now applied in this context to online datasets, videos and other formats and types of information containers. Every resource relevant to DOI's is either present in or linked to from this website, for instance: FAQ's, a detailed handbook, fact sheets and white papers; links to DOI registration agencies like DataCite and CrossRef; and links to browser tools being developed to facilitate and expand the usefulness and applicability of the Digital Object Identifier.
Keywords: data, deep web, digital, DOI, informatics, information management, information science, links, ontology, open source, periodicals, portal, research, search, W4eb tools
Descriptions: DataCite is an international organization established in December, 2009 to promote and facilitate the expansion of the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) system to include scientific datasets. Membership includes publishers, libraries and data centers. Researchers will benefit from access to scientific data supporting findings explicated in full-text articles, and will be able to link to that underlying data in the same way DOI enables links to text. DataCite provides standards and workflows for the publication of this data, and enables researchers to reliably locate and cite submitted data.

Provider: United States Census Bureau
Descriptions: QuickFacts provides various local-level views of community characteristics through key demographic variables. Search by U.S. city or town, county, state or ZIP Code. This data can support efforts to tailor health education and communication to particular audiences, so they receive critical public health information in a format that is relevant, intelligible and timely.

Provider: Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Descriptions: This website contains data sets, reports and rankings that include information on the quality of care delivery, patient outcomes, and patient feedback on physicians, hospitals, and cost. A "data hub" provides interactive graphics of state populations broken out by ethnicity, educational attainment, and age group for a number of healthcare measures, such as rates of the uninsured, portion of state budgets spent on healthcare, healthcare quality, and more. The focus of this website is discussion and demonstration of how "big data" can serve to improve health care in the United States.

Provider: National Institutes of Health
Descriptions: The Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF) is a semantically-enhanced portal to a dynamic inventory of Web-based neuroscience resources. An initiative of the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research, NIF enhances discovery and access to often unindexed but publicly available research data, datasets, software and tools in the deep web, as well as linking to PubMed records and open-access literature. The NIF Project provides the NIF Registry, Antibody Registry, Drug Related Gene Database, neuroscience ontology and a way to contribute to it (via the NeuroLex wiki) and semantic tagging services. NIF Navigator, a customizable, stand-alone search tool for incorporation into websites or wikis, draws query results from all the NIF's own components and from other sites and accessible databases. The valuable resources at NIF are too numerous to be described adequately here.
