The Washington University Libraries Open Scholarship repository is now contributing to SHARE, a free, open data set of research and scholarly outputs. WU is now one among 56 different providers (including ClinicalTrials.gov, PubMed, DOE, Harvard DataVerse, UIUC Ideals) who contribute to SHARE's growing corpus of approximately 2 million records
By aggregating, connecting, and enhancing metadata that describes the full breadth of research activities and outputs—from data management plans and grant proposals to preprints, journal articles, data sets, and repository deposits - SHARE will increase research impact and advance the scientific record. This free, open data set about research activities provides data to tell a fuller story about scholarship, and to enable unforeseen innovation and services in the area of open scholarship.
Currently, WU is contributing metadata about faculty and staff publications and presentations stored in our institutional repository.
