Many funders around the world have begun to recognize the importance of providing free access to research results, which includes publications and data. There has also been an increased interest in the management, dissemination, and access of research data, leading to an increase in the development of research data repositories and the linkage of data to publications. One example is Dryad, a curated general-purpose repository that makes the data underlying scientific publications discoverable, freely reusable, and citable. A highlight of the Dryad repository is the submission integration service to authors and publishers, which integrates the submission of publication manuscripts with the submission of data to Dryad. Purdue University has developed a comprehensive publication workflow to integrate discrete data publications with traditional scholarly publications through leveraging new and existing repository platforms and library services throughout the research lifecycle. This poster will illustrate this early initiative between the Purdue e-Pubs Repository, the Purdue University Research Repository (PURR), and the Joint Transportation Research Program (JTRP). With this new initiative the Purdue repositories can now provide Purdue faculty, graduate students, and staff an integrated solution for the publishing and linkage of discrete scholarly publications and research data.
