Dataverse, Cloud Dataverse, and DataTags, at Two Sigma, Tuesday, February 7, 2017:
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... Read more about Dataverse, Cloud Dataverse, and DataTags
Cloud Dataverse , at Massachusetts Open Cloud Workshop, Boston University, Tuesday, December 6, 2016:
Cloud Dataverse will be a new service for accessing and processing public data sets in a the Massachusetts Open Cloud (MOC). It is based on Dataverse, a popular software framework for sharing, archiving, and analyzing research data. Cloud Dataverse extends Dataverse to replicate datasets from institution repositories to a cloud-based repository and store their data files in Swift, making data processing faster for in-situ application running in the cloud.

The Metadata Model of The Dataverse Project: Helping More Data Become Discoverable, at IASSIST 2016 in Bergen, Norway, Thursday, June 2, 2016:

Poster by Eleni Castro.

Abstract
Since 2006 the Dataverse Project, an open source data repository application developed at Harvard's Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS), has provided metadata for datasets in the social sciences using the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) standard. Over time the Dataverse application has expanded to also include metadata and file support for: additional domains such as astronomy and the biomedical sciences, as well as to increase interoperability with other systems. This poster will...
