Building Dataverse Communities that follow RDA Best Practices for Data Sharing and Management
In the last years, the Dataverse project has successfully built an engaged community from universities and organizations from 6 continents, with currently 46 productions sites around the world that host data across all disciplines. This active and growing community has since 2018 created a Consortium to provide scalable support and services to its member Dataverse repositories. This session will: Discuss the Dataverse Project, Community, and Global Dataverse Community Consortium Demonstrate how the Core Project team engages with the Community: • for curation (e.g. trainings, workshops) • for design (e.g. UI Testing) • for development (e.g. architectural design to facilitate external tools; process to manage external pull requests, etc) • discuss what works, what doesn't Demonstrate RDA Best Practices using Dataverse by the diverse Community Members.
