Storing data in the Academic Bibliography

Academic Bibliography as 'trusted repository'

Besides the full text of a publication Ghent University researchers can also upload additional material in the Academic Bibliography, such as:

  • Datasets
  • 'Codebook' containing all separate steps and definitions

Only completed datasets pertaining to a specific publication may be uploaded.

  • Preferably 'open' formats such as R, CSV (but SSPS / SAS / XLS files are also allowed)
  • Focus on classic use-case for statistics and 'supplementary materials'
  • web upload for bitstreams up to 200 MB (several uploads are possible)

As is the case for uploaded publications specific access rights (incl. embargo) can be indicated.

The employees of the University Library are responsible for quality control of the metadata (i.e. not the quality of the data), the archiving and discoverability of the dataset.
