Pilot launched for the new data sharing infrastructure
The Digitalization Platform, together with the Research Data Team and KTH IT, is piloting a new infrastructure for data sharing, one that enables researchers to publish, catalog and share datasets. Researchers are invited to test the new infrastructure for the Data Sharing Initiative.
Research data represents a major investment, which could be leveraged to a greater extent than it is today. Sharing research data has many benefits: reuse, transparent research processes, opportunities for recognition and acknowledgements, possibilities for collaboration. There is a need to share data with different actors during the many phases of a research project, including publicly towards the end.
Now a new infrastructure pilot for data sharing, one that enables researchers to publish, catalog and share datasets, is launched by the Digitalization Platform, together with the Research Data Team and KTH IT.
The pilot infrastructure is based on Invenio, a turn-key research data management repository. The current infrastructure is planned to be hosted within, and internal to KTH. This should enable researchers to securely store, version, describe and share datasets with collaborators and other actors, with full control over who gets access to the resource.
Invenio provides an extensive feature set, which includes but is not limited to:
- Storage of any datatype, in any format/size
- Versioning support
- DOI registration
- Persistent identifiers
- Metadata only records
- Advanced query syntax
- API Integration
