Status: The Banner Image Widget is functional. The Data Display Widget is still being designed.

Several journals and publishers have asked us to design widgets. These widgets will be used to embed Dryad content on a page displaying article information. Different entities want different levels of detail, from a simple image with a link to a fully-functional snapshot of the data.

Data Display Widget

A fully interactive iframe.

  • Requirements
    • Do not include the package title or description, because these are too similar to the article title and abstract (which may already be displayed on the article page).
    • When we display filenames, links should point to the data package pages, not to the data file pages.
