Our RDM partnerships

NIH’s Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative (GREI)

Elsevier's Mendeley Data repository is a participating member of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Data Science Strategy (ODSS) GREI project. The GREI includes seven established generalist repositories funded by the NIH to work together to establish consistent metadata, capabilities, services, metrics and social infrastructure among the generalist repositories, develop use cases for data sharing, train and educate researchers on FAIR data and the importance of data sharing, and more.

The GREI mission is to ensure that data associated with research publications is readily available and will enable use and reuse of NIH-funded data regardless of which generalist repository the data resides in. As a participating member of this initiative, Elsevier’s Mendeley Data helps to foster a culture of data stewardship by promoting effective and responsible data management and sharing practices.
