UW Libraries Joins Dryad
UW Libraries has announced its official membership with the generalist data repository Dryad, an open data publishing platform and development community. The Dryad Data Platform is a curated resource that makes research data discoverable, freely reusable, and citable. Dryad provides a general-purpose home for a wide diversity of data types and now counts over 75 institutions and publishers in its membership. A libguide is available with information on how UW researchers can get started with the service.
- Dryad is the first open data publishing platform available to UW users. It will serve as a companion to UW Libraries ResearchWorks.
- Dryad accepts data regardless of data type, format, content, or disciplinary focus.
- The National Health Institute’s new data management and sharing policy that went into effect January 23rd named Dryad as one of the Generalist Repositories recommended by the National Institutes of Health.
- Because UW Libraries is covering the full cost membership, UW users will not have to pay a fee to deposit data in Dryad.
