The Dataverse project, developed at Harvard's Institute for Quantitative Social Science since 2006, is a widely used software platform to share and archive data for research. There are currently more than 20 Dataverse repository installations worldwide, with the Harvard Dataverse repository alone hosting more than 60,000 datasets. Dataverse provides incentives to researchers to share their data, giving them credit through data citation and control over terms of use and access. In this talk, I'll discuss the Dataverse project, as well as related projects such as DataTags to share sensitive data and Cloud Dataverse to share Big Data.
