Harvard researchers can preserve both their scholarship and their data through Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (DASH) and the Dataverse Network.




  • Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (DASH) is Harvard University’s central service for sharing and preserving scholarly work. In addition to the scholarly journal articles targeted by Harvard’s several open access resolutions, DASH can be used to self-archive manuscripts and materials. DASH supports a variety of file formats, and related materials (such as data, images, audio and video files, etc.) can be deposited with manuscripts. The Office for Scholarly Communication (OSC) operates the DASH repository as an effort to provide the broadest possible access to Harvard scholarship. 




  • The Dataverse Network is an open source application to publish, share, reference, extract and analyze research data. It facilitates making data available to others, and allows to replicate others work. Researchers and data authors get credit, publishers and distributors get credit, affiliated institutions get credit. A Dataverse Network hosts multiple dataverses. Each dataverse contains studies or collections of studies, and each study contains cataloging information that describes the data plus the actual data files and complementary files.
