LIBER Webinar: Data Citation Roadmap, at LIBER Webinar, Monday, May 15, 2017:

A Data Citation Roadmap for Scholarly Repositories:

The roadmap makes 11 specific recommendations, grouped into three phases of implementation:

  1. Required steps needed to support the Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles (a synopsis and harmonisation of the recommendations of major science policy bodies);
  2. Recommended steps that facilitate article/data publication workflows;
  3. Optional steps that further improve data citation support provided by data repositories.

It was developed by the Repositories Early...

Cloud Dataverse: A Data repository platform for an OpenStack Cloud, at OpenStack Summit, Boston, Monday, May 8, 2017:

In the last 10 years, the Dataverse project has been a leader in open-source repository software for sharing and archiving research data. Dataverse has an active, growing community of developers and users, with 22 installations of the software around the world. The Harvard Dataverse repository alone hosts 70,000 datasets, 330,000 data files, with contributions from more than 500 institutions. 

Cloud Dataverse combines Dataverse and OpenStack by storing datasets in OpenStack’s Swift Object storage and replicating datasets from Dataverse repositories world-wide to the cloud(s...

Citation++: Data citation, provenance, and documentation, at NSF SI2 Conference, Arlington, VA, Tuesday, February 21, 2017:


By Mercè Crosas (PI), Margo Seltzer (PI), Jackson Okhun, Thomas Pasquier & Dataverse team.

The dawning of the digital research age – computational science, computational social science, and the digital humanities – brings with it both enormous potential and challenges. Visions of interactive publication, open data, reproducible results, and massive digital collections are exciting, opening up new research frontiers and the promise of more rapid dissemination of and building upon research ouput. However, to date, little of this vision has been realized. It remains...

Dataverse, Cloud Dataverse, and DataTags Tuesday, February 7, 2017:

Talk given at Two Sigma:
The Dataverse project, developed at Harvard's Institute for Quantitative Social Science since 2006, is a widely used software platform to share and archive data for research. There are currently more than 20 Dataverse repository installations worldwide, with the Harvard Dataverse repository alone hosting more than 60,000 datasets. Dataverse provides incentives to researchers to share their data, giving them credit through data citation and control over terms of use and access. In this talk, I'll discuss the Dataverse project, as well as related projects such as...
