RDIM Frequently Asked Questions Why do I need multiple Data Publication records?

Why do I need multiple Data Publication records?

It is recommended you have multiple Data Publications if you are publishing papers throughout your research project, e.g. you might have:

  • RDMP
    • Data Record
      • Data Publication A
      • Data Publication B
      • Data Publication C etc

The Data Record would include all the project information, codes and attachments or links for the completed data. The researcher then selects the specific data that needs to be published via the Data Publication. In the above example, the Data Record would be built throughout the research project and not just completed at the end.

Note:  You may find it more efficient to create a Data Record at the project level rather than the dataset, as you can create one, or several Data Publications from your Data Record.
