The SDS service draws on multiple different repositories and archiving solutions across the University (Incl. ORA, DigiSafe and RFS), as well as offering our own SDS platform.
The SDS platform, is an online open-access research repository, that allows researchers: to deposit their research outputs, ranging from text to images to audio-visual media to code or .XML files (for example, TEI files); to tag them with custom keywords and metadata; to organise them into datasets or collections; to share them with collaborators, researchers, and the general public; and to search across their datasets by keywords and metadata fields.
We don't adopt a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, the SDS service aims to connect researchers at the University of Oxford with the digital sustainability solution that best fits a project's needs and resources. The SDS service also connects researchers with other teams at the University who can offer advice and guidance on data management more broadly e.g. Research Data Oxford, Open Scholarship Support and with the Mosaic team who manage the University's web publishing platform.
