General Information
Dryad is an open-source, community-led data curation, publishing, and preservation platform for CC0 publicly available research data. Dryad has a long-term data preservation strategy, and is a Core Trust Seal Certified Merritt repository with storage in US and EU at the San Diego Supercomputing Center, DANS, and Zenodo. While data is undergoing peer review, it is embargoed if the related journal requires / allows this. Dryad is an independent non-profit that works directly with: researchers to publish datasets utilising best practices for discovery and reuse; publishers to support the integration of data availability statements and data citations into their workflows; and institutions to enable scalable campus support for research data management best practices at low cost. Costs are covered by institutional, publisher, and funder members, otherwise a one-time fee of $120 for authors to cover cost of curation and preservation. Dryad also receives direct funder support through grants.
