The University Library is excited to announce that we have joined the not-for-profit, community-governed data repository service Dryad as an institutional member. This means that KAUST researchers can deposit to Dryad without paying additional data publishing charges or limiting submissions to data related to articles in Dryad associated journals. Dryad is unique among general purpose data repositories in that every submitted dataset goes through a curation process to help researchers organize and document their data in a way that will make it easier to re-use.
The Dryad best practices guide will help you think through how to organize and document your data in a way that will enhance its usefulness for others. Once you make your submission Dryad curators will also help you identify ways to improve it before finally making it public.
Check out the library’s data sharing libguide for information about other options, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions.
