EDINA is supporting DISC-UK, a national group of data librarians, with a new JISC-funded project called DataShare, exploring ways to help academics share their data over the Internet.
With four universities taking part - Edinburgh, LSE, Oxford and Southampton - a range of exemplars will emerge from the establishment of institutional data repositories and related services.
Project members will work closely with staff involved with repository management and development at their own institutions to pilot models for depositing research data into institutional repositories. The project will help to demystify complex data in repositories, and assist institutions in overcoming barriers to incorporating research data.
