Google’s new Dataset Search

Google has announced the launch of a new tool, a Google Scholar for data. The tool, Dataset Search, aims to make it possible to search across different online data repositories, rendering datasets retrievable even when published in disparate and unconnected locations and resources.

The initial release of the search will cover environmental and social sciences, government data, and datasets from news organizations. It is expected that, as the source becomes more widely used, the amount of data should increase, as institutions, organizations, publishers, and individual scientists and researchers make their information more openly accessible.  Aided by open data initiatives around the world, it is hoped that the project will improve data transparency and the quality of research produced, as a greater quantity of and more diverse data will be available for consideration and comparison.
