Welcoming Dryad to Drexel

We would like to welcome Dryad and Erin Clary, Dryad Curator, to Drexel University. Dryad is a curated general-purpose repository that makes the data underlying scientific publications discoverable, freely reusable, and citable. Dryad is distinguished by the close association of data deposition with the process and business of scholarly publishing, and by using article publication as a model for how researchers can benefit from data sharing infrastructure. The MRC is a chief curation hub for Dryad. Dryad will now be located in the new MRC space, in Rush 213, on the main campus of Drexel. Jasmine Clark and Edward Krause, both master’s students at CCI, will be joining the CCI as new assistant curators. For more information about Dryad, see the Dryad wiki.
