Data sharing, recognized among researchers as contributing to more robust and advanced science, is becoming increasingly important in the research community. The NIH has identified a set of FAIR principles for scientific data management and expects institutions to comply by applying these principles to their data.
While data sharing is encouraged in the scientific community, researchers struggle to effectively make their data available. Appropriate tools are critical to facilitating collaborative research. The Dataset Registry has been designed as a common gateway for Duke researchers to register their own datasets, as well as search and view the catalog of shared data assets.
It has long been a goal to make it simple for Duke researchers to share data assets within the research community. Establishing the Dataset Registry as an institutional resource is a step toward a more collaborative, compliant, and open science environment at Duke
