The CyVerse Data Commons Repository
The Data Commons Repository (DCR) is the ideal platform for ease of reuse of data. It can store very large datasets, which are difficult to transfer, upload, and download across different computers and platforms. From the DCR, data is accessible to CyVerse's suite of large-scale computational analysis resources, so that users can seamlessly analyze, manage, and publish new results. Within the DCR, your data will be very secure and will have a permanent identifier (a DOI or ARK) for proper citation.
If you are interested in obtaining a permanent identifier for one or more datasets, please read the Identifier FAQ page and then answer the questions on Is the CyVerse Data Commons Repository right for my data?
How to request a DOI
- Review the Is the CyVerse Data Commons Repository right for my data? and Identifier FAQ page.
- Organize the dataset in a single folder within the CyVerse Data Store.
- Attach the DataCite metadata template to the folder and complete all required fields (add tutorial link). Additional metadata can be added under "User metadata".
- Submit a request for a DOI (add link to User Manual page for how to do this).
- At this point, you dataset and metadata will undergo CyVerse validation checks, and a CyVerse DCR curator will be notified of your request.
- If validations are passed, the curator will check your metadata for any errors and ensure that your dataset includes the necessary components and is well organized.
- If the curator determines that minor changes (e.g. typo corrections) are needed, they will make those changes themselves.
- If the curator determines that substantive changes are needed, they will contact you with required changes.
- If the curator determines that your dataset is not appropriate for the DCR, you will be notified.
- Once the curator determines the dataset is complete and metadata are accurate, they will provide a DOI and you will be notified of the DOI and the location of its corresponding landing page.
How to request an ARK
(Coming Soon - will be similar to a DOI)
