Dryad's data model


A deposit in Dryad consists of three primary parts:

  • Data Package: A Dryad Data Package represents all of the data associated with a single scientific publication. This is a DSpace item that contains only metadata. The metadata contains a mix of fields that describe the data and fields that describe the associated publication. The landing page for a Dryad Data Package displays a small summary of each associated Dryad Data File. (sample landing page, sample metadata)
  • Data Files: A Dryad Data File represents a single file of downloadable data. Each file is a DSpace item that contains file-specific metadata as well as the bitstreams.
  • Bitstreams: The bitstreams are downloadable files that contain data OR documentation. In DSpace, these bitstreams are always part of a Dryad Data File item. A single DSpace item may contain multiple bitstreams, which contain the same scientific data in different file formats. Each Dryad Data File may also contain a special bitstream with the name README, which contains documentation describing the format and usage of the other bitstreams in the same Dryad Data File.

For examples of atypical/extreme objects in Dryad, see Sample Dryad Content.
