English abstract

This paper studies research data repositories in the social sciences and humanities (SSH), from the Registry of Research Data Repositories (re3data), paying particular attention to metadata models used to describe the datasets included in them 397 repositories are reviewed at the general level, including those of a multidisciplinary nature. We discuss and reflect on the special features of research data in these disciplines, and on coverage and information collected by re3data. The metadata schemas and standards most commonly used in SSH repositories are analyzed, with special emphasis on the six main repositories.

Spanish abstract

Se estudian los repositorios de datos de investigación en ciencias sociales y humanidades (CSH), recogidos en el Registro de repositorios de datos de investigación (re3data), prestando especial atención a los modelos de metadatos que utilizan para describir los datasets incluidos en ellos. Se revisan a nivel global los 397 repositorios que, según re3data, recogen datos deinvestigación sobre esas disciplinas, incluidos, los de carácter multidisciplinar. Se discute y reflexiona sobre las particularidades de los datos de investigación en estas disciplinas y sobre la cobertura e información que recoge re3data. Se analizan los esquemas y estándares de metadatos más utilizados en los repositorios de CSH, con un análisis más pormenorizado de los seis repositorios de datos especializados más importantes.
