DataUp Service Description
The DataUp add-in and web application help researchers organize, manage, archive, and share their tabular data. The major functionality of both tools is to guide researchers through the following:

  • Carry out a best practices check to determine if there are issues present that might make use or interpretation of the data difficult
  • Create metadata in standardized EML (Ecological Metadata Language) format
  • Describe the attributes (i.e. columns) of the dataset in standard EML format
  • Obtain a unique identifier for the dataset
  • Generate a data citation
  • Post the data and associated metadata to a data repository
