A Dataverse is a container of Datasets and a Dataset is a container of data files, documentation, and code

Dataverse RICH SUPPORT FOR Data

  • Extract variable metadata from tabular data files
  • Visualize geospatial files in a map
  • Extract header metadata from FITS files
  • Reformat

Dataverse customization and Branding

Dataverse integration with journals

Data citation from article to data, review workflow, replication code

What are we working on NOW?

Data Provenance

track the original source of a Dataset

Pasquier, Lau, Trisovic, Boose, Coutierer, Crosas, Ellison, GIbson, Jones, Seltzer, 2017, If These Data Could Talk, Nature Scientific Data (Data Provenance examples from CERN and Harvard Forest)

ClouD Dataverse

Combine data repositories with Cloud computing

StrUctural Biology Data Bank

Data Privacy

classify and handle datasets based on Their privacy level

Harvard Data Privacy Tools Project: privacytools.seas.harvard.edu

DataTags Project: datatags.org

INTEGRATION WITH TOOLS

Dataverse as part of the data lifecycle
