FGV Dataverse increases visibility of studies produced by internal community
As part of the Open Science movement, research institutions and funders (including research funding agencies, universities, companies and governments) are asking researchers to account for the data that supports scientific publications.
In the article submission process, scientific journals now require authors to upload the data and materials used in their research to open or restricted-access data repositories, such as the Open Science Framework, the Harvard Dataverse, the Qualitative Data Repository and ResearchBox. Storage in private directories such as Google Drive and Dropbox is no longer accepted.
As a result, researchers and institutions are now responsible for research data management, in order to maintain data integrity and reproducibility in the future.
The FGV Research Data Repository (FGV Dataverse) is a platform created with the aim of preserving and curating the institution’s databases while complying with journals’ new requirements. It is indexed by the Harvard Dataverse, as well as 98 institutions around the world, meeting the requirements to publish research in renowned scientific journals.
The data produced in a study can be cited and reused by other researchers and scientific publications. Under the FGV Dataverse’s curatorship, it is now possible to publish, preserve, share and highlight research data generated by the FGV community.
Furthermore, data version control allows researchers to better manage their research data over time.
To add data to the FGV Dataverse, you only need to have a connection with the institution and comply with Brazil’s General Data Protection Law. The platform will then guarantee the quality, security and privacy of the information provided.
Learn more about this tool by attending our webinar, called The FGV Dataverse: Research Data Repository. This public event will present the repository, as well as challenges and opportunities related to research data management and the promotion of Open Science. It will be livestreamed on FGV’s YouTube channel on May 26, at 2 pm. Sign up here.
