Strategic Goals

The Strategic Goals of the Dataverse Project are to:

  • increase adoption (users, datasets, collections, journals, installations)
  • develop the capability to handle sensitive data and big data
  • expand data and metadata features for existing and new disciplines
  • expand archival and preservation features
  • increase interoperability through the implementation of standards
  • increase contributions from the open source development community
  • improve UX and UI
  • continue to increase the quality of the software

Roadmap

One area of focus is the Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative (GREI). The announcement has details of areas being explored.

Project Board

Our project board on GitHub is open for public review and comment. This is where we track development and QA activities. Often these items are discussed during community calls, but please feel free to give feedback and join our community through any channel.
