UCLA Library is adopting Dataverse, the open source web application designed for sharing, preserving and using research data. UCLA Dataverse will allow data, text, software, scripts, data visualizations, etc., created from research projects at UCLA to be made publicly available, widely discoverable, linkable, and ultimately, reusable. We will also support the ability of research groups, centers, schools and departments to obtain their own sub-dataverse that they can administer with guidance and training from the Data Science Center. 

Dataverse is an open source web application the enables sharing, preserving, citing, exploring, and analyzing research data. It facilitates making data available to others, and allows you to replicate others' work more easily. The DSC is responsible for UCLA Dataverse installation and helping researchers curate and publish their data. We are also a member of the Dataverse Constorium.
