In fall 2018, OCUL’s Scholars Portal service and the University of Toronto Libraries received funding from the CANARIE RDM grant program for the development project “Dataverse for the Canadian Research Community.” The aim of the project, which is also supported by CARL and Portage, is to enhance Dataverse to address the needs of a broad range of researchers in Canada through improved scalability, integration with Canadian cloud storage and authentication providers, and better support for data curation.
 
Scholars Portal is now halfway through the 18-month project. To help members of the data management community stay up to date with this project, the Scholars Portal team is pleased to announce a new Scholars Portal Dataverse Blog. The blog will be updated regularly with news, milestones, and more background on the work Scholars Portal is doing to enhance Dataverse, as well as occasional RDM-related news.
 
New posts will be shared on the Scholars Portal Twitter account and via RSS feed. SpotDocs users can also receive notifications by clicking “Watch this Blog” on the main blog page.
 
The first post is live here: CANARIE project update: Dataverse for the Canadian Research Community
 
Scholars Portal Dataverse is a publicly accessible Canadian data repository provided by Scholars Portal on behalf of OCUL members and other participating institutions. For more information on Dataverse, please see our user guide.
