Apart from documents, you can increase your impact by compiling the research data and make it searchable through Google Scholar, Google Dataset, Mendeley Data, Zenodo, GitHub, for example among other search tools. Making your data findable increases the use of your data and citation of your documents, and enhances your reputation.
Research Data Management (RDM) is "how you look after your data throughout your project. It covers the planning, collecting, organising, managing, storage, security, backing up, preserving, and sharing your data and ensures that research data are managed according to legal, statutory, ethical and funding body requirements" (Whyte, A. & Tedds, J., 2011).
RDM occurs in every stage of the research lifecycle, not just at the end where all the data files are simply zipped up in a folder for storage.
NUS Libraries provides DOI minting service through DataCite for NUS Staff.
If your dataset is hosted in ScholarBank@NUS, a DOI will be assigned to it automatically.
To get a DOI for your scholarly output, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate the resource type (e.g., dataset, website, technical report, etc.) and provide a short description of your items in the email.
In order for NUS Libraries to mint a DOI, the item must fulfil these essential criteria:
ScholarBank@NUS is the Institutional Repository (IR) of the university. The goals of ScholarBank@NUS are to collect, preserve and showcase the research output of NUS researchers and through this, increase the research visibility of NUS researchers and demonstrate the research excellence of NUS to the world. Starting from November 2017, ScholarBank@NUS accepts research data produced by NUS researchers. Persistent identifiers (Handle & DOI) will be generated for archived datasets as well.
Please refer to this guide for more details on how to deposit a dataset into ScholarBank@NUS.
