*A growing number of funding agencies and international scholarly
organizations are requesting that research data be made more openly
available* to help validate and advance scientific research. Thus, this is
an opportune moment for research data repositories to partner with journal
editors and publishers in order to simplify and improve data curation and
publishing practices. One practical example of this type of cooperation is
currently being facilitated by a two year (2012-2014) one million dollar
Sloan Foundation grant,* integrating two well-established open source
systems: the Public Knowledge Project’s (PKP) Open Journal Systems (OJS),
developed by Stanford University and Simon Fraser University; and Harvard
University’s Dataverse Network web application, developed by the Institute
for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS).* To help make this interoperability
possible, an OJS Dataverse plugin and Data Deposit API are being developed,
which together will allow authors to submit their articles and datasets
through an existing journal management interface, while the underlying data
are seamlessly deposited into a research data repository, such as the
Harvard Dataverse. *This practice paper will provide an overview of the
project, and a brief exploration of some of the specific challenges to and
advantages of this integration.*
