DryadUK – supplementary data and e-journals

Charles Beagrie Limited are pleased to be partners in the DryadUK project which launched earlier this month. DryadUK is a JISC-funded project being run from the British Library and Oxford University, with assistance from NESCent, the Digital Curation Centre (DCC), ourselves, and the Research Information Network (RIN).

The project is assisting the further development of Dryad in the following ways:

Expanding Dryad

  • By establishing a UK mirror site
  • By expanding the service to include new publishers, journals and disciplines

Increasing Dryad sustainability

  • By developing a sustainable business plan
  • By establishing a framework for evaluating Dryad data usage

Adding value

  • Exploring ways to improve metadata standards for deposition, citation and annotation
  • Adding usage of DataCite dois.

For further information see the DryadUK webpages.
