The Library can assist you to publish your research datasets, e.g. for data underpinning a research publication. There is currently a data publishing process on UON ownCloud storage using the CRATEit publishing tool. When you login to owncloud.newcastle.edu.au you can upload your data files and then use the CrateIT tool to pick, package and publish the files for your dataset. The CRATEit tool is available on ownCloud under the File menu (see image below). A notification for a published dataset is then sent to the Library.
The Library will contact you to finalise the publishing of your dataset, i.e. to select a Creative Commons license to apply to your data and to provide a DOI if required for data citation.
For large datasets the above ownCloud and CRATEit process may not be suitable in which case the library will facilitate alternative processes to assist in publishing any larger datasets.
Further information and advice on publishing datasets is available from the library. In mid 2020 a new automated online service, a Data Management Dashboard, will be available.
