There is no one-size-fits-all protocol for depositing your research data into a public repository in a way that maximizes its reuse and citation. We’ve assembled a panel that will help you understand the issues and opportunities for developing new tools and documentation.
This 1-hour event, moderated by Kara Woo, includes 5 speakers and 20 minutes for Q & A on:
- Where and how to deposit data (or data + software!)
- Challenges in data deposition for reuse
- How to reuse data
- Where are the gaps?
Speakers will cover nuances of general and domain-specific repositories (Dryad, the DataONE federation of repositories, Arctic Data Center), what curators look for, what to do when you want to deposit both data and software, designing tools to help researchers provide the right metadata to maximize reuse, making data reuse easier with R tools like piggyback, and their vision for new tools and documentation.
All are welcome.
