This page lists examples of Dryad content with specific properties. Recommendations for authors on what to deposit and general suggestions on data management can be found in the Dryad FAQ.

General cases

Dryad content that may be useful as models for depositors and journals.

Models for depositors

A very thoroughly documented data package: [1]

Sample journal articles illustrating links to data:

There are two ways to include a ReadMe with your data:

  • Data packages with a ReadMe file: [2], [3], [4], [5], [6]
  • ReadMe for each data file: [7], [8], [9]

Examples of embargoed packages:

Different types of content

Examples to highlight a variety of possible submission formats.

Data packages with different authors from their corresponding articles:

Data package that is a portion of a larger dataset: Payne

Extreme cases

A reference for curators and developers when testing functionalities or thinking about design.

Large data files: Brian Sidlauskas's fish jaw image, Laurie Stevenson's sequence alignments, Cossio (2010) PLOS Computational Biology, Geraldes (2011) Molecular Ecology Resources

Data packages with non-CC0 licensing: Swenson (2011) Systematic Biology (file consists of code with GNU GPL 3.0 license), Sally Otto's package under Dryad's original license [17], items in the BIRDD collection under Dryad's original license (at least some of these can probably be moved to CC0)

Items with many authors: D'Hont (2012) Nature

Connections with other repositories and platforms


Data packages with related content in TreeBASE: Sam Price's hunting package, Melo (2011) Molecular Ecology (TB link in article Data Accessibility section)

Examples by file type

See http://wiki.datadryad.org/Opening_Files for a list of programs that we use to open, view, or edit different file types.

Data packages with unusual or interesting content:

Data of specific file types; non-proprietary file formats are preferable:

Compressed formats:

Reuse of Dryad data

Large scale search and automated monitoring

There is currently a lack of good tools for tracking reuse of datasets archived in Dryad. Some cases can be found by searching scholarly databases such as the Data Citation Index, Google Scholar, and through publisher's websites.

While we work toward solutions to this problem, we are collecting cases of reuse in a Google spreadsheet accessible to Dryad staff. The most frequently downloaded data package is also frequently cited:

  • Zanne AE, Lopez-Gonzalez G, Coomes DA, Ilic J, Jansen S, Lewis SL, Miller RB, Swenson NG, Wiemann MC, Chave J (2009) Data from: Towards a worldwide wood economics spectrum. Dryad Digital Repository. http://dx.doi.org/10.5061/dryad.234

Use in classes, textbooks, and other educational contexts

  • Physics 722, a graduate statistical physics class at NCSU. The Neudecker et al. 2012 data on tetrahedral packing is used for problem set #4. (Disclosure: The NCSU professor is married to TJV)
