Research data and DiVA

Smaller data sets kan be uploaded to DiVA to be publicly avaliable or just to be archived. It is also possible to link from publications in DiVA to data sets in other databases.

Citing research data

A persistent identificator is needed such as doi or urn:nbn.

DataCite is a not-for-profit organisation with the aim to:

  • establish easier access to research data on the Internet
  • increase acceptance of research data as legitimate, citable contributions to the scholarly record
  • support data archiving that will permit results to be verified and re-purposed for future study
