Introducing Dryad!

The UCSF Library is pleased to announce that we have partnered with Dryad, an open-source, research data curation and publication platform. Dryad, which recently merged with the UC platform Dash, is available as a free service for all UCSF researchers to publish and archive their research data. Dryad is integrated with hundreds of journals and is an easy way to openly publish data and comply with funder and publisher mandates.

With Dryad you can:

  • Upload up to 300GB of research data from cloud storage or lab servers (or your laptop!)
  • Version or update your data at any time
  • Get a DOI and citation for your dataset that can be used by other researchers
  • Find standardized data usage and citation statistics for your data
  • Submit and download data through a REST APIs

A reminder that Dryad is an open data repository and is therefore not a solution for PHI or sensitive data.
