This grant supports the expansion of Dryad, a well-respected nonprofit and open source data repository that has focused on the deposit and curation of datasets in fields lacking a disciplinary data repository. Partnering with the University of California’s California Digital Library and CERN’s Zenodo repository, Dryad aims to develop a community data curation and publication platform driven by researcher needs and institutional values. The envisioned expansion will integrate Dryad with other software systems commonly used by researchers across the academic research and publication pipeline, including Jupyter, rOpenSci, DataSeer, ScholarOne, and Editorial Manager. Additional funds will support a partnership with Zenodo to integrate the two systems, supporting publishers and researchers, and allowing for triaged deposits to best practice repositories based on content type.
