WORKING PAPER
An Introduction to the Dataverse Network as an Infrastructure for Data Sharing
King, Gary

Abstract
We introduce a set of integrated developments in web application software, networking, data citation standards, and statistical methods designed to increase scholarly recognition for data contributions; put some of the universe of data and data sharing practices on firmer ground; and facilitate the public distribution of persistent, authorized, and verifiable data, with powerful and easy-to-use technology, even when the data are confidential or proprietary. Our goal is to solve some of the political and sociological problems of data sharing via technological means, with the result intended to benefit both the scientific community and the sometimes apparently contradictory goals of individual researchers. (More information on this project is available at http://TheData.org.)
