Summary of award

Dryad received a grant entitled "Sustainable and Scalable Infrastructure for the Publication of Data" from the U.S. National Science Foundation for the period 2012-2016.


The U.S. National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, the University of North Carolina Metadata Research Center, North Carolina State University's Digital Library Program.


The goals of this grant are: "to build capacity for scaling up the repository so that it has the ability to handle an order of magnitude more data on annual basis, from dozens to hundreds of journals. Additionally we will evaluate the consequences of repository and journal policies in order to provide evidence for future decision-making and to evaluate the success of the archive. Finally we will implement a mature revenue plan that will allow Dryad to transition from a research project to an independent not-for-profit organization, one that is governed by its stakeholder community."
