Submissions (Research Data)

NC DOCKS is now partnering with UNC Chapel Hill's Odum Insititute to host research data. This partnership offers the following advantages

  • no cost to ECU faculty
  • integration with NC DOCKS
  • automatic indexing of tabular data
  • automatic conversion of tabular data to multiple formats
  • redundant, geographically distributed back ups
  • cross searchability with thousands of other datasets (primarily in the social sciences)
  • long term storage of your data
  • ability to control the degree of access others have to your data
  • ability to update datasets and keep track of multiple versions

The Joyner Library believes that the NC DOCKS / Odum partnership will ably fulfill the data management plan requirements that are now commonly being mandated by granting agencies. For assistance in writing a data management plan, or with uploading your dataset to NC DOCKS / Odum, please contact Songyao (Samuel) Chen.

Each data submission should be accompanied by the Odum Institute Data Archive Data Deposit Form.
