We help faculty, student, and staff researchers to organize, analyze, store, and share their research data. We can help prepare data management plans (DMPs) for grant proposals, consult on best practices for storage and preservation, help optimize sharing and discovery of data, and assist with your data visualizations. We work with ITS, OSP, and others to advance research data management at Dartmouth College.

DOIs are persistent identifiers that allow your datasets to be cited in a consistent manner and ensure correct attribution. Dartmouth has an institutional account from EZID that makes it easy to mint DOIs with DataCite. Contact email@example.com if you are interested in having a group account to assign DOIs to your datasets.
