Name of presenter: Bram Luyten
About the presenter: Bram Luyten assisted in the development of the DSpace based Dryad repository. The presentation will be prepared in collaboration with the Dryad staff.
Abstract: The Dryad project (http://www.datadryad.org) operates a repository for research data supporting publications in the domain of bio sciences. This presentation proposal highlights approaches and learnings from the Dryad project in following areas.
Over the years, the metadata lifecycle has been optimized with deep involvement at the publisher side. By enabling maximal (re-)usage of existing metadata and automated generation, the effort to submit data is kept as low as possible for individual scientists.
Governed by a consortium of academic institutions and publishers, the project combines the efforts of different stakeholders to distribute costs and increase uptake in the community.
