Dataverse is an open source software for setting up a repository for research data, which can be used by journals or research institutions, among others. Researchers can use the general Harvard Dataverse repository or check the entities that exist worldwide, in order to set up a personal Dataverse collection. This means that the research data for the research community is more easily traceable and can also be shown on your personal website. Furthermore, data management plans are generated and the requirements of research institutions and publishers on the joint use of data are fulfilled. Dataverse or one of the entities helps researchers to make their research data more visible and thereby to receive recognition for their data through formal scientific data citations. You can also control when and with whom you share your datasets.
