Best Practices for Research Data Management (RDM) : Using Dataverse for Research Data [article]

Eugene Barsky
In Canada, as in many developed countries, requirements for data management are being established across a wide range of scholarly disciplines. In this presentation, Eugene Barsky from the University of British Columbia will offer UBC Library expertise in managing thousands of data files with Dataverse software. UBC Abacus Dataverse ( is open-source software, developed by Harvard, which allows researchers to share, cite, preserve, discover, and analyze research

Dataverse has proven to be a flexible platform that can support many models for research data management services. It offers a range of features that improve data discoverability and access. It also does a good job of managing data files from a preservation perspective: it manages versions, conducts checksums to maintain data integrity, and supports persistent identifiers. In this session we will cover how to: Create and change records Metadata, types of metadata, standards Uploading files, large files, zipping Version control Tabular analysis in your browser Granular access to datasets: public, institutional, groups UNFs for data analysis OAI for discoverability
