Dryad is a non-profit data repository offering both institutional members and individual researchers a secure location for research data storage. NMSU is now a Dryad member and NMSU researchers can deposit their data in Dryad. This is especially important for researchers with data sets that do not fit in any of the federal or subject repositories.
Dryad makes it easy for researchers to upload and share their data.
1. Login with your ORCID ID
Don't have one? You can create one straight from the Dryad login page. Because NMSU is a Dryad member, you will be prompted for your NMSU credentials. Once logged in, you will see the NMSU logo and can start submitting your data. ORCID stands for Open Researcher and Contributor ID.
2. Data Types
Don't worry about data types because Dryad accepts many different types of data.
3. Data Curation
Dryad curates and then publishes your data. Select the Private for Peer Review check box if you want to suspend data publication until after the peer review process is complete. In all cases, the Dryad folks ensure your data is curated. If they have questions, they will be in touch.
4. Data Publication
Dryad notifies you once your data is published and provides you with a permanent DOI (digital object identifier) you can use to cite your data. You can update and re-version your data set at any time.
