Dryad Integration

The Dryad Digital Repository is a curated resource that makes research data discoverable, freely reusable, and citable. Dryad provides a general-purpose home for a wide diversity of data types. RSpace integrates with Dryad by allowing you to export data in RSpace into a Dryad dataset, just like with Dataverse and Zenodo.

You must have a Dryad account and an ORCID iD in order to use the Dryad Integration

Before starting

  1. Ensure that your RSpace server has Dryad enabled and configured. If it is not then on the Apps page Dryad will be marked as "Unavailable" and a system administrator will need to follow the steps described in: Introduction to configuring RSpace Apps
  2. Enable and connect the Dryad integration in the Apps page, just as you would for any other third-party integration. See Apps Introduction. You'll need to login with your ORCID iD. If you don't have a Dryad account, you can create one at datadryad.org.

Exporting to Dryad

  1. In the RSpace workspace, select a document and choose export.
