Introduction to Dataverse for data sharing

Scholar’s Portal Dataverse is a publicly accessible, secure, multi-disciplinary, multi-lingual repository for research data, searchable from anywhere in the world with servers hosted in Canada. Developed at Harvard University, this repository platform includes features such as permanent links (DOIs) that encourage citation of your data set and help you to set licensing terms for access and reuse of use of your data.

In this session, we will explore best practices for organizing your research data for sharing, DOIs and data citation. We will discuss the importance of curating data throughout your project to meet FAIR guidelines when sharing your data using Dataverse.
