29 January 2016) The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Library has recently established a platform called DataSpace@HKUST to facilitate HKUST researchers in publishing research data – and storing and sharing data among their own group.
Once published in DataSpace@HKUST, datasets will be given an internationally recognized identifier (DOI) and become openly accessible, making it easier for researchers to get credit for their work. The Library will provide services to enhance the metadata and to ensure the published data is properly archived and permanently accessible.
HKUST researchers can also create their own workspace in DataSpace@HKUST for their ongoing projects. They can store and manage their data files in a restricted environment throughout the research cycle, sharing data among collaborators or with classes.
