This Curator Guidelines is meant for DR-NTU (Data) managers (Manager) at NTU Library.
DR-NTU (Data) allows depositors, who have relevant permission, to add and publish dataverse/dataset directly.
The Manager shall perform data curation at the earliest possible timeframe, which could be at the point of dataverse/dataset addition or publication.
Upon creation of new dataverse under the root, which requires Admin role (e.g. Department and Organization/Institution category), the Manager has to add the following information:
Upon creation of new sub-dataverse (Researcher, Research Group, Research Project category), the Manager has to check and communicate the following to the dataverse creator/admin:
Upon creation of new dataset, the Manager has to check and communicate the following to the Dataset Depositor:
1. All the mandatory metadata fields
|Dataset title||When to use the prefix|
Replication data for: the paper title
Replication data for: Homeostatic cytokines and inflammatory
|When you have sufficient data documentation that facilitates others to replicate your experiments to derive the same findings as reported in your published paper.|
Related data for: the paper title
Related data for: Homeostatic cytokines and inflammatory
|When you are sharing less than what is needed for others to replicate|
2. Additional metadata fields:
5. Republish the datasets (only applies if the Manager edits a published dataset)
6. "Change curation status" of DRAFT dataset.
If the dataset is in DRAFT, a curation status can be applied. For datasets where the author has been contacted after curation, "Author contacted" label applies. For datasets that have related publications prior to publication, "Awaiting paper publication" label applies and takes precedence.
For potentially sensitive research data, refer to this curation workflow (internal access only).
