- This video tutorial provides a step-by-step guide through the DARIAH-DE Publikator, a tool that enables its users to upload data(-sets) into the DARIAH-DE Repository and index them with metadata. The tool is part of the larger DARIAH-DE Data Federation Architecture, aiming to support the FAIRification of research data with regards to the research data life cycle.
- This tutorial explains the fundamentals of the DARIAH-DE Publikator, a tool which allows you to prepare, manage, and finally import your collections into the DARIAH-DE Repository using your favourite internet browser. The Repository provides the ability to store research data and enrich them with metadata. Through the use of persistent identifiers, a permanent machine-readable reference is ensured and findable via a generic search. The tutorial contains guides for users as well as technical documentation.
