Complete integration with popular data archives & digital ID
RSpace has been designed as a complete bench-to-publication data management solution. An important part of the RDM lifecycle is archiving lab data into suitable public or private repositories.
In version 1.41, we have improved support for exporting your data directly to popular archives like Figshare, Dataverse and DSpace, and also added support for embedding metadata from your unique ORCID digital ID directly into those exports. These additions make it easy to use RSpace to publish and cite raw data, and also archiving lab data to your “lifetime” academic career portfolio. You can even use ORCID links in the RSpace directory to help locate potential collaborators and dig deeper into their publication history. Archiving lab data using RSpace is simple and seamless and can be customized to connect to whatever archive you use, even those not yet on our list. Archiving lab data with RSpace also supports good security and data integrity thanks to our digitally signed (SHA protected) data export feature.
What’s next? Lots of exciting things are in the works! For starters, we have released the first version of our highly anticipated API, but we will say more about that next time….
