Apps

External Applications Interacting with the Dataverse Network

  1. dvn package on CRAN: Provides access to the Dataverse Network Data Sharing API via the RCurl package, enabling access to archived data (and metadata), along with a number of functions to translate responses to API calls into R data structures using the XML package. Additionally, support was added for access to the Dataverse Network Data Deposit API (in ongoing development), which users will be able to integrate data (and metadata) archiving directly into the R workflow with just a few simple functions. Developed by: Thomas Leeper. Follow its development on GitHub: https://github.com/leeper/dvn

  2. Open Journal Systems (OJS) Dataverse Plugin: Developed by the Public Knowledge Project (PKP), in partnership with the Dataverse Network, this plugin provides access to the Dataverse Network's Data Deposit API (SWORDv2-based) enabling Journal Managers using OJS to automatically deposit an article’s underlying research data and supplementary files into their Journal’s Dataverse. Follow its development on GitHub: https://github.com/jwhitney/dataverse

  3. Open Science Framework (OSF) Dataverse Addon (coming soon)
    "The OSF is a web-based platform supporting documentation, sharing, collaboration, archiving, and registration of materials across the lifespan of a scientific project. Our integration with Dataverse will allow our users to create or connect data and metadata from Dataverse via the OSF and link back to the OSF project from the associated Dataverse study." Follow its development on GitHub: https://github.com/CenterForOpenScience/openscienceframework.org/issues/112


  4. ResearchCompendia Dataverse Integration (coming soon): ResearchCompendia is a web service allowing people to share the research software and data associated with a scientific publication (articles and working papers). Similar to OSF's Dataverse Addon (see #3 above), integration with Dataverse will allow ResearchCompendia users to create or connect data and metadata from Dataverse via ResearchCompendia and link back to their Research Compendium from the associated Dataverse study. Follow its development on GitHub: https://github.com/researchcompendia/researchcompendia/issues/150. Future ResearchCompendia plans will allow Dataverse users to run their code on ResearchCompendia.

We strongly encourage anyone interested in building tools to interoperate with the Dataverse Network to utilize our open source APIs:

If you have developed an application to interoperate with the Dataverse Network we would love to hear from you.
