8.4 California Digital Library & Dryad: Community Owned Data Publishing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In light of the current research data landscape, Dryad and California Digital Library (CDL) are formally partnering to address researcher needs and lead an open, community-owned initiative in research data curation and publishing. This partnership is focused on driving adoption of research data publishing by meeting researchers where they are in their workflows. By working together, we will create global efficiencies and minimize needless duplication of effort across institutions, freeing up time and funds. Our goal for this session is to engage with the CNI community and institutional stakeholders on the future of Dryad. The new Dryad service will be focused on being a collaborative data publishing platform that integrates data curation/stewardship more closely into researcher workflows. To accomplish these goals, a new Dryad service will be hosted on a nimble, open-source CDL developed platform, reliant on integrations with journal publishing platforms for ease-of-deposit, and offer a transparent layer for institutions to get involved in data publishing in a system where their researchers are already depositing. But, for Dryad to be a success it will need to be supportive and reflective of institutional values and build a strong institutional community. Members from the Dryad and CDL team will present on the work already underway to launch the new Dryad as well as gain feedback from attendees on our longer-term partnership roadmap and business models.
