Abstract: Since the Dataverse Project --an open source data publishing framework developed at Harvard's Institute for Quantitative Social Science-- released its SWORD API for data deposit in 2013, several stakeholders have developed integrations specifically into the Harvard Dataverse ( and other Dataverse-based repositories with various automated workflows throughout the research life cycle. This poster will demonstrate the technology necessary for interoperability between different systems with Dataverse, and highlight a number of these automated use cases which can occur at different times during the research lifecycle. Some examples include: researchers using R to deposit data and scripts into Dataverse (Dataverse R package on CRAN) or to archive data from a research project (OSF Dataverse Add-On); authors submitting data for a journal article (OJS and ScholarOne); and preserving research data for the long term using Archivematica.
