Advancing Research Data Publishing: Dryad’s Next Steps
Dryad and California Digital Library (CDL) have partnered to address researcher needs and drive adoption of research data publishing. Since partnering last year, a joint product team across CDL and Dryad has transitioned the Dryad digital repository on to UC’s former Dash technology. We are now gearing up to launch this collaborative service for the global research communities. We are looking to librarians and research stakeholders for feedback and ideas for successfully launching the renewed Dryad. Join our webinar to hear about our new Dryad Institutional Membership model and preview our new Dryad service!
