Materials and guidelines for demonstrating Dryad at conferences. Also see Heather Piwowar's Google doc for an outline of her Dryad demo at Science Online 2011.


Demonstration points

  1. Homepage
  2. The Dryad package landing page
    • shows all files in the data package
    • gives download and access statistics for each file
    • links back to journal article (example: Goldberg)
  3. Data and article citation policy (Using Data)
  4. Bookmarking/downloading citations
  5. DataCite DOIs
  6. Download a file
  7. Content in public domain (CC0), with embargo allowed
  8. Dryad is built on the DSpace framework, so it has a solid underpinning
  9. Files may be versioned (to correct errors, not to update with more data)
  10. Content is mirrored and locally supported
  11. Content is curated and migrated to new formats
  12. For specific kinds of data, see the examples listed at Sample Dryad Content.
  13. Other points to make:
    • Nonprofit membership organization
    • Journal-supported Partners
    • RSS feeds (and other notification mechanisms)
  14. Submission
    • Coupled with article submission
    • Will start charging Sept. 2013, but many journals and publishers will be covering the costs for authors
    • Straightforward data upload process lowers the author burden
    • TreeBASE handshaking (where it is in submission system, show sample item within the TB submission)
    1. Media:SimpleTestNexus.txt‎
    2. Media:SimpleTestNexus2.txt‎
  15. Searching -- how to find other related content
    • Simple keyword search on taxon name (examples: Drosophila, Mollusca)
    • Sample searches
    1. tunicate OR delsuc (retrieves all data from an international research group)
    2. whale
    3. primate aging
    4. piwowar
    • Faceted drill-down
    • Enables discovery of content outside the context of an article
