UW–Madison joins Dryad, open-access repository for research data

UW-Madison is now a member of Dryad, an open-access data repository where researchers can publish and publicly share research data. Dryad was started by a community of researchers and is used worldwide to meet funder and publisher mandates for data publication.

As yet another great example of the effort to advance emerging research, the Libraries are pleased to share that depositing in Dryad is now free to UW-Madison researchers, thanks to a membership pursued in partnership between the Libraries and DoIT.

Dryad has been a repository that UW-Madison has recommended for several years. The goal is to continue supporting, managing, preserving, and making research data and other outputs available.
