40th EUI Research Dataset Added to the Research Data Collection in Cadmus

On the 23rd of April, the 40th EUI research dataset was added to the multi-disciplinary Research Data Collection in the Cadmus repository. The EUI Research Data Collection is an infrastructure for the preservation of EUI research data outputs; a platform for sharing research data; and a solution for funder-mandated research data management compliance (eg. EU Horizon Europe / ERC).  To submit a dataset for reposit – please 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.  An overview of EUI research data support is in the EUI Library Research Data Guide. Only EUI-generated datasets can be included in the EUI Research Data Collection. [ctd…]

Love Data Week 2021

During international Love Data Week, the Library is raising awareness of the EUI Research Data Collection in the Cadmus repository and Library Research Data Services including; data management planning; data protection and copyright; and data preservation and repositing:

♥ The Library helps researchers, fellows and professors to preserve their research data in the EUI Research Data Collection in the Cadmus repository
♥ The first step is to complete the Library’s online data submission form
♥ We will then 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 in the online form to generate metadata to describe your dataset and make it findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR data principles)
♥ The Library also helps research project managers to prepare data management plans (DMPs) which are required when applying for EU Horizon Europe and ERC funding
♥                                                                Continue reading…

10 Datasets now available in Library ResData repository for preserving and sharing EUI research data outputs

The Library has completed the beta test phase of the new ResData repository infrastructure. Ten EUI-generated datasets are now available for open data sharing. There are over 50 sub-sets. EUI members from all departments and centres are encouraged to submit research data outputs for preservation in the multi-disciplinary ResData repository. The new repository is compliant with the open data mandates of EU Horizon 2020 and other international science funding programmes. The EUI Library offers specialist advice regarding the preparation of data for reposit, data protection and data copyright – which helps EUI members determine if, and when, their data is suitable for open data sharing with, or without, embargo.
