Data Preservation and Sharing via Cadmus

EUI members can preserve research dataset outputs in the EUI research repository Cadmus. To submit a dataset for reposit – complete this online form. The EUI Library offers specialist support regarding (i) data protection (ii) database copyright and (iii) advice on metadata, file-naming, format, structure, and whether data should be archived under embargo, or made available as open data.

  • After completion of the submission form, EUI Library staff will make an appointment for transfer of data, documentation and –  where applicable – code
  • Any researcher, fellow or professor – from any discipline – can submit research data outputs to the EUI Research Data Collection
  • Library staff will use the information from the online form to generate metadata to describe the dataset and make it findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR data principles)
  • Librarians also help research project managers to prepare data management plans (DMPs) which are required when applying for EU Horizon Europe and ERC funding.
