Types of Dataverse Account available

In order for you to deposit material with the ADA you must first register for an ADA Dataverse DEPOSIT account. The sequence of events detailed within this section must be followed to complete the registration process.

The ADA uses different versions of Dataverse depending upon the activity being conducted but the process is there same for each.

  • Dataverse PRODUCE is used for all final releases of datasets and is the site where dataset access is requested from, this is often described as the ‘Live’ site.
  • Dataverse DEPOSIT is a site that allows Data Owner’s to Self-Deposit their data with the ADA.
  • Dataverse TEST is used to build the dataset and to test the published version ahead of the content being transferred to the PRODUCE site.
  • Finally, the Dataverse DEVELOPMENT site is used internally for system development, process testing and improvement analysis.

If you encounter issues during any of the Dataverse Registration process please contact a member of the ADA Staff for assistance, their details can also be located on the ADA Website
