We are pleased to announce that The Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) now sponsors Data Publication Charges (DPCs) through Dryad’s voucher plan, which enables an organization to prepay DPCs at a discounted rate on behalf of its researchers.

nioo_logo_212wThe Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW) is a unique ‘all ecologist institute’ covering animal, plant, and microbial ecology on land and in water. NIOO has about 220 employees, students and guests, making it one of the largest research institutes of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). Its core task is to perform basic and strategic ecological research on individual organisms, populations, ecological communities and ecosystems.

By becoming an institutional sponsor with Dryad, the Institute can be confident that the valuable datasets produced by its researchers are securely preserved, discoverable, citable, and prominently linked with their publications. The researchers also benefit from an easy, cost-free submission process and the added curation that Dryad provides to all its content.

Dryad provides a home for nearly any type of data associated with a peer-reviewed article, book or book chapter, dissertation, thesis or other vetted publication. Dryad’s voucher plan provides institutions with an easy way to support the data management needs of their researchers without requiring additional infrastructure or an exclusive arrangement. If you would like to learn more about how your organization can partner with Dryad, please contact us.
