Queen's Dataverse Collection Data Deposit Guidelines

Describe your Data

Describe your dataset with rich metadata to facilitate discovery. 

Researchers who deposit research data into Borealis, the Canadian Dataverse Repository, all description metadata fields must be included. It is further recommended that researchers include metadata in the geospatial metadata fields and the subject-specific metadata field, we appropriate.

Queen’s University Library (QUL) will suggest changes to metadata for the purposes of discovery, reuse, and preservation.
