Dryad and DANS have entered into a new partnership. These free research databases announced a collaboration to ensure the preservation of a rich research data repository. Dryad makes the data underlying published research available online. This data is often linked to the associated peer reviewed publication in academic journals. The work of more than 50,000 researchers may be found on its online platform. It assigns a DOI to the data helping to make them searchable, reusable, and citable. Under the new agreement, the scholarly literature available through Dryad will be backed up to the DANS archive.
