How to archive data in UiT Open Research Data (Zoom)
Link to meeting room: Join Zoom Meeting
When you have finished treating your research data, you should upload these to a suitable repository. Sharing allows other researchers to reproduce your research, it might lead to more visibility and citations, and it can open for new collaborations. In this webinar, we discuss how to archive your data in UiT Open Research Data, UiT’s own repository. The repository is available for archiving, sharing, reusing and citing open research data from all disciplines. All employees and students at UiT can upload their data, which then become visible via major search engines such as Google Dataset Search. The repository has the Core Trust Seal certification.
In this webinar, we will give a short introduction to the structure and use of the repository. We will explain the deposit guidelines and the steps involved to submit a dataset for archiving, including:
- Creating a dataset draft
- Entering metadata
- Writing a readme file
- Confirming or specifying a reuse license
- Uploading files
- Sharing the unpublished dataset with your peer reviewers (if relevant)
- Specifying a file embargo (if relevant)
We will also briefly touch upon the review process by our data curators and how you can make changes to your dataset after it has been published.
The webinar will be hands-on, with demonstrations and the possibility to try-out uploading a dataset yourself.
The webinar builds on the two modules “How to structure and document research data” and “How to archive research data” (for a complete overview of our webinars, go here).
