Step 1 - Open the portal
Point your browser to https://rdm.datahubmaastricht.nl/
Click Login item on the menu on the left side
or the Login button at the bottom of the page.
You will be redirected to the SURFconext service where you can choose to login with your UM- or MUMC+ credentials.
Once successfully authenticated, you will have access to the all the menu items:
- Preserve data
- Access Data
- Reuse Data
Step 2 - Start Copy
Click the Access data item in the menu at the left side.
On the next page, click Projects.
This will generate a 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 generate 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 generate the collection details page with a (meta)data overview.
Also if enabled, the Data migrations section will offer you some self-service feature.
In the Data migrations section, you can click on Start copy.
Step 3 - Fill the form
After clicking on Start copy in step 2, this opens a new option selection form for this collection.
There are various fields to fill out. The section below explains the values to enter in the various fields.
Select the Open Access Repository
Here you must select DataverseNL.
Select the Dataverse
Select the dataverse, the endpoint folder, whereto you want to copy the collection at the Maastricht University dataverse in DataverseNL.
Your own department is not listed here and you would like to choose it. It means that DataHub & the University Library (UB) do not have a Data Curator registered to curate and publish the new created data collection for this Department in DataverseNL.
Please send us an email at email@example.com to request it. (also maybe become a Data Curator)
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 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 to be accessible from not authorised person, not your metadata.
Select the file to copy
Here you select the file(s) that you want to copy to the repository.
- By default, the entire collection will be copied if no file is selected.
- 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"
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 DataHub infrastructure 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
