Zenodo is a general-purpose open-access repository developed under the European OpenAIRE program and operated by CERN. It allows researchers to deposit data sets, research software, reports, and any other research related digital artifacts. For each submission, a persistent digital object identifier (DOI) is minted, which makes the stored items easily citeable.
Zenodo was created in 2013 under the name OpenAire orphan records repository, to let researchers in any subject area to comply with any open science deposit requirement absent an institutional repository. It was re-launched as Zenodo in 2015 to provide a place for researchers to deposit datasets and allows upload files up to 50 GB.
It provides a DOI to datasets and other submitted data which lacks one, to make the work easier to cite and supports various data and license types. One supported source are GitHub repositories.
Zenodo is run with Invenio (an open source software framework for large-scale digital repositories), wrapped by a small extra layer of code that is also called Zenodo.
In 2019 Zenodo announced a partnership with fellow data-repository Dryad to co-develop new solutions focused on supporting researcher and publisher workflows as well as best practices in software and data curation.
