Step 1 - Open MDR
Point your browser to https://mdr.datahubmaastricht.nl/
Use the menu on the left side to login with your UM- or MUMC+ credentials.
Step 2 - Start Copy
Click the Access data item to expand the menu at the left side and click Projects.
This will display the list of projects that are currently accessible by you.
Then click on the Project ID (e.g P000000001) that contains the collection you want to copy.
This will display the list of collections currently present in the selected project.
Click on the collection ID (e.g C000000001) you would like to copy.
This will display the collection details page with a (meta)data overview and a listing of files and folders.
In the Data migrations section, you can click on Start copying to DataverseNL.
Step 3 - Fill the form
After clicking on Start copying to DataverseNL in step 2, a page is displayed where you can configure the data transfer job.
There are various fields to fill out. The section below explains the values to enter in the various fields.
Select the Dataverse
Select the dataverse (i.e. the endpoint folder) to which you want to copy the collection at the Maastricht University dataverse in DataverseNL.
If your own department is not listed here, it means that DataHub & the University Library (UB) do not have an active Data Curator for this department registered to curate and publish your newly created data set.
Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to work this out together with you.
You might even be interested to become the data curator yourself and be of awesome value to your fellow researchers worldwide!
The default dataverse is DataHub if nothing has been selected
What do your want to copy?
- Metadata → Only copy all the metadata available at DataHub to DataverseNL
- Metadata+Data → Copy all the metadata and copy the selected or all the data files to DataverseNL
- If selected, two new selection options become available. They will be described below
Do you want to put a restriction on your data?
This will only restrict your data files to be accessible from non authorised persons. It does not affect the accessibility of your metadata.
Select the files to copy
Here you select the file(s) that you want to copy to the repository.
- If no file is selected, the entire collection will be copied by default
- Dataverse doesn't allow the following special characters in the filename:
/ : * ? \" < > | ; #
They will be replaced by an underscore ('_').
- A couple of DataverseNL FAQ:
- "a file can be 10 GB max"
Check the box where you agree to the Terms and Conditions and UM privacy-regulations and press Start copy to initiate the process.
Step 4 - Data migration status
By pressing Start copy in step 3, you return to the collection details page and will see a new card containing the information of your copy.
What happens now is that your data collection is being copied from the Maastricht Data Repository to DataverseNL.
Your will also see that the status of your data set changes sequentially to:
If you encounter any other status than the one listed above send us an email at email@example.com
Step 5 - Email confirmation & Data curation
When your copy is successful, you will receive an email confirmation that summarizes what happened and what the next step will be concerning the (meta)data curation.
The data curator will receive a notification about your copy and will go to DataverseNL to review your data collection.
