Introduction to Dryad (Open Access Week)
Dryad is an open and curated general-purpose repository for research data. Through Lane Library, Stanford has an institutional membership with Dryad, meaning that affiliated researchers can submit and publish their research data free of charge.
As part of Lane Library's celebration of Open Access Week, we have invited Dryad to give a demonstration of their platform.
Please note: This event will be held via Zoom. We will send the Zoom link 24 hours before the session.
Some of the key features of Dryad include:
- Flexible about data format, while encouraging the use and further development of research community standards.
- Fits into the manuscript submission workflow of its partner journals, making data submission easy.
- Assigns Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to data so that researchers can gain professional credit through data citation.
- Promotes data visibility through usage and download metrics and by allowing content to be indexed, searched and retrieved.
- Promotes data quality by employing professional curators to ensure the validity of the files and descriptive information.
- Contents are free to download and re-use under a Creative Commons Zero (CC0) license.
- Contents are preserved for the long term to guarantee access to contents indefinitely.
- Open source, standards-compliant technology.
