Curation services are available for datasets in VTechWorks and DOIs may be assigned to these sets. We also offer a Virginia Tech configured DMPTool to help with creating funding agency-compliant data management plans and a forthcoming data management guide to assist with planning throughout the year.
VTechWorks is an OAI-compliant campus-wide repository for collecting, organizing, managing, preserving, and provide access to the intellectual output of Virginia Tech, including 'grey literature' in the form of technical reports, working paper series, conference proceedings, pre-prints, post-prints, theses and dissertations, videos, images, and datasets. Materials in the repository are full-text searchable and indexed by commercial search engines such as Google and Google Scholar. Digital objects are automatically assigned persistent URIs and we assign DOIs for eligible materials upon request.
E-publishing services include hosting PKP's Open Journal Systems and Open Conference Systems software and assisting with workflow design and overall production support. Our services enable faculty members to create new open access journals or transition existing journals from print to electronic and to produce and disseminate articles and conference proceedings as widely as possible.
We provide high-quality video recording and live video streaming services for scholarly events (lectures, speaker series, conference keynotes, etc.) on or close to campus. We are available to capture conference keynotes, research forums, and final project presentations.
General questions can be sent to our email address.
More detailed questions can be directed to the CDRS staffer responsible for the service or resource. See our people page for a list of staffers.
