Environment

A database of research programmes supported by DFID. 40,000 records of projects, including who conducted the research, their organisational affiliation, and details of the project scope, country of operation, funding, and much more.

A range of services have been developed to make the datasets held within R4D accessible to other organisations and individuals to enable others to reuse this knowledge and build and extend applications in new and creative ways. R4D provide two main services for the delivery of research metadata:

1 The Linked Development platform - http://linked-development.org/about.html

Linked Development provides all the same data plus much more in a powerful triple store and API.

For more detailed information on how to access and use our information, please see our R4D Open Data information page http://r4d.dfid.gov.uk/opendata.aspx . Please note that these services both now come under the name of R4D Open Data to reflect the addition of the Linked Development platform to the Gateway in August 2013.

The R4D Gateway uses an older and more established method for exchange of publication metadata using OAI_DC Dublin Core XML and RDF.
