I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Simplify upload of many data files

    The dataset that I am uploading consists out of many files which I put into zip files to make it manageable. It would be much easier to submit such datasets if datadryad would support uploads by pushing into a git repository, or maybe even fetch a repository from github etc.

    • Includes provenance trace in package metadata as part of OAI-ORE that gets registered

      This will enable DataONE to pull in the provenance with the other metadata and display it as long as the provenance is in a standard format like ProvONE or other W3C PROV compatible spec.

        • Make it easy for me to promote my Dryad content

          On the Dryad data package page, it should be easy to find instructions for using the Dryad banner image. http://wiki.datadryad.org/images/b/bc/Dryad_web_banner_small_v4.jpg

          • Let non-author users provide cleaned up versions of datasets

            One of Dryad's philosophies is that it should be as easy as possible for users to contribute data. This is valuable for getting data archived, but it typically makes the data much more difficult to work with, especially in automated ways. Users can clean the data up themselves, but this means that user has to repeat the same work and it this still doesn't solve efforts to automate the acquisition, cleaning, and use of, data.

            I proposed providing a mechanism by which someone other than the authors of the data set can provide a restructured/cleaned up version of the data…

            • Unsubscribe/customize mailings link

              I would like to discontinue overly frequent data notifications in my email. Please provide links on the profile update page to allow choice of no email, weekly or monthly summary, and/or a newsletter only with no data notices

                • Randomize the order of ideas

                  Randomize the order of ideas, so the one having the most votes is not always at the top of the list, where it will gather more votes simply by virtue of its position

                  • Display full text of each idea

                    Display full text of each idea (with scroll bar if necessary), so reader does not have to click on each one to see content - readers will rarely take the time to open each one to decide whether or not to support it.

                      • Allow me to upload data before my article has been accepted

                        I want to upload my data at the time I'm submitting my article. That's when I best remember which file is which, not at the time of acceptance.

                        • Import my existing Dryad datasets into my ORCID profile

                          I want my Dryad datasets to be included in my ORCID works profile. It is time consuming to add each one manually.

                          A Dryad->ORCID importer could be one of the importer choices on the ORCID website, beside the Scopus importer (ORCID welcomes importer contributions!), or an option from my profile on the Dryad website.

                          • Show ImpactStory statistics on the Dryad website

                            In addition to showing number of downloads and views as Dryad does now, show ImpactStory stats. This will show the view+download percentile numbers so we know if the number of downloads is actually a lot, finds mentions of Dryad datasets in full text of papers (for publishers who allow this), etc.
