Research Data (new service!)

As part of the data curation service provided by Duke Libraries, any dataset deposited with Duke’s Research Data Repository, will now be added via Elements and displayed in Scholars@Duke. This addition to Scholars@Duke will provide additional visibility for the variety of scholarly materials Duke researchers publish. If researchers are depositing in external repositories, one can also easily manually add their own datasets within Elements.

For questions about depositing your data here at Duke or elsewhere, contact datamanagement@duke.edu.
