The Dataverse Network is an open-source repository for sharing, citing and analyzing research data developed at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) at Harvard University. It provides a platform for replicating previous work and helping validate science. It generates a formal persistent data citation to allow referencing a data set (and its version) from a publication. Each Dataverse in a Dataverse Network is customized and managed by a researcher or research group, while the data sets are archived in a central repository. Harvard University currently hosts a Dataverse Network fo social science data and another one for astronomy data.
