Dryad is a nonprofit data repository offering researchers a secure location for research data storage. UW is now a Dryad member and UW researchers can deposit their data in Dryad at no additional cost to them -- deposit costs are covered by the Libraries' membership fee. This is especially important for researchers with data sets that do not fit in any of the federal or subject repositories.
Dryad makes it easy for researchers to upload and share their data.
1. Login with your ORCID ID
2. Describe your Data
3. Data Types
Dryad accepts many different types of data:
4. Data Curation
Dryad curates (reviews) and then publishes your data. Select the Private for Peer Review check box if you want to suspend data publication until after the peer review process is complete. In all cases, the Dryad folks ensure your data is curated. If they have questions, they will be in touch.
5. Data Publication
Dryad notifies you once your data is published and provides you with a permanent DOI (digital object identifier) you can use to cite your data. You can update and re-version your data set at any time.
