The Dataverse Network System and the Data-PASS Partnership [view poster]
Micah Altman, Senior Research Scientist, Institute for Quantitative Social Science, micah_Altman@harvard.edu.
The Data-PASS partnership engages in collaboration at three levels: coordinated operations, development of best practices, and creation and use of open-source shared infrastructure. The Dataverse Network® repository is a data sharing and archiving web application. A Dataverse Network contains collections of individual dataverses, which you can browse and search for data. A dataverse is a web site and virtual archive where you can store, permanently preserve, distribute, and generally or selectively share your data or list data from other dataverses. It ensures that you receive formal scholarly citation credit for your data and more attention for your related writings. It also can increase your web visibility via easy customization that makes your dataverse look like part of your web site. The Dataverse Network hosts the shared catalog for the Data-PASS partnership and provides the digital library infrastructure for two the member archives. New features that have been recently released and are in development, such as automatic data versioning and support for LOCKSS replication, make it even easier for archives to participate in Data-Pass.
