On this website we have gathered information about DataverseNO.

DataverseNO is an archive service for open research data, owned by UiT The Arctic University of Norway and operated by the IT Department and the University Library at the same institution. The platform is based on the open source application Dataverse, which is developed at Harvard University.

Data sets in DataverseNO are equipped with persistent identifiers (so-called DOIs, Digital Object Identifiers). DOIs serve as unique references to data sets, and they make the datasets searchable in search engines.

DataverseNO is open for Norwegian research institutions and individual researchers from Norway. Norwegian research institutions can use DataverseNO (https://dataverse.no/) as a platform for their researchers who need to archive and publish open research data so that they can cite them, e.g. in research articles. Datasets from researchers affiliated with DataverseNO partner institutions will be published in institutional archives of the type UiT Open Research Data (https://opendata.uit.no). Institutions wishing to test out DataverseNO can get access to a test instance. Individual researchers not affiliated with a DataverseNO partner institution are granted up to 1 GB storage space for free. If you need more storage space, please contact us at research-data@support.uit.no.

Training package for DataverseNO partner institutions
UiT is responsible for training and support for super users at partner institutions, whereas the partner institutions are responsible for data curation and user support at their own institution.

The DataverseNO training package for super users at partner institutions may e.g. consist of a one day meeting at UiT focusing on distribution of responsibility, system, workflow incl. curation, as well as end user training. In addition, we can offer Skype meetings and other presentations of DataverseNO to be agreed on.


Contact us at research-data@support.uit.no if you would like more information.
