Introduction to Dataverse
How and why do you share your data with other researchers in your field, once your active research work is done? Maybe you’ve submitted an article for publication and the reviewers want access to your data. Maybe you want to share the data that supports your thesis or dissertation. Maybe you want to ensure that other researchers (yourself included) can access and use your data in the future. In this session, we’ll look at UBC’s institutional data repository, Dataverse. We’ll examine some of the workflows that support depositing data, including data preparation, descriptive metadata and persistent identifiers.
Office hours to support this workshop will be held on Friday, 09 October. Please register in advance.
Doug Brigham has been the Research Data Management Librarian at UBC Vancouver since 2020. He is the administrator for UBC’s space within Dataverse@Scholars Portal and provides support to researchers in many disciplines. He is a member of the Research Data Alliance.
This workshop is part of the RDM Fall Series 2020. The series is designed to be taken as a complete cycle, in order, over a three week period this fall. The sessions will build on one another using a mock research project and data, but we encourage you to bring your own project if you’d like!
These sessions will be presented by the UBC Research Commons, UBC Advanced Research Computing (ARC), the UBC Okanagan Library and the UBC Centre for Scholarly Communications. Follow us on Twitter with the hashtag #UBCRDM2020!
