About the project

This was an experiment developed at U.Porto, which aimed to identify the scientific data curation needs at the university and the main problems in establishing a multi-disciplinary data curation platform.

U.Porto already offers a shared publications repository platform. The Open Repository of U.Porto is designed for depositing and disseminating the scientific production of the academic community.

U.Porto has participated in a state-of-art study in the context of the RCAAP. This study provides some insight on current data curation-related projects.

This project has been referenced at U.Porto's TIC Portal.

In June 2011 a presentation at IASSIST by Cristina Ribeiro and Eugénia Matos Fernandes, “Data Curation at U.Porto: Identifying current practices across disciplinary domains”, has referenced the project setup plan.

U.Porto has created an informative video presenting the institutional framework for the data repository. It includes three demonstration videos which highlight the curation process, data exploration and dataset search in the experimental repository.
