For a while we've had a database-driven map on Dataverse installations on https://dataverse.org and we encourage[1] the community to get in touch to put their installation on the list when the go live.

Some related news is that we have implemented the idea below of exposing in JSON format the list of Dataverse installations (25 as of this writing) at https://services.dataverse.harvard.edu/miniverse/map/installations-json

Some day I'd like the JSON output to include information on which installations would like to advertise themselves as being open to harvesting (and which OAI-PMH sets would be best to harvest). For more on this, please see this new issue: https://github.com/IQSS/miniverse/issues/61 . Comments are welcome, of course!

Thanks,

Phil

30 is a good guess (thanks, Sebastian!) but 25 is the number of Dataverse installations around the world at https://dataverse.org right now. I'll attach a screenshot of the map*. Sebastian's guess is actually an underestimate if you count the installations that haven't launched publicly yet but I'm sworn to secrecy about that. :)

Hélène, we'd love to be able to put Switzerland on our map! Hopefully, the Dataverse Installation Guide at http://guides.dataverse.org/en/latest/installation is clear enough but we are always interested in feedback on how it can be improved. The best way to give us feedback about the Installation Guide is to open an issue at https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse since we version the guides in the same git repo as the code.

Thanks,

Phil

Someday it would be nice to expose data about the installations of Dataverse around the world via API as JSON. Judging by the JSON file below it should be easy to expose the following to start:

- Name of Dataverse installation
- Description
- URL
- Logo
- Lat/Long
- Version of Dataverse

If anyone is particularly interested in this, please open an issue at https://github.com/IQSS/miniverse/issues

That depends on what you mean by "your tool". If you use the Dataverse installation at Harvard (dataverse.harvard.edu) then the data is saved at Harvard, i.e. in the US. I'm not aware of any Dataverse installation running on Swiss servers at the moment.

If you install the dataverse software (which is open source and used by more than 30(?) repositories around the world, you can install it on local servers, which can be anywhere you want.

If you want a simple solution (i.e. without having to run your own servers) for a single project, you could look at zenodo.org, which is run out of CERN in Geneva, though I'm not actually sure where their servers are and if they are governed by EU or Swiss law.

Hope that helps,
Sebastian

Dear Sir or Madam,


We are currently searching for tools for Research Data Management, in accordance with the data lifecycle, in a research project led at the Haute école de gestion of Geneva, as part of the program of our Master’s degree in Information sciences.

For this purpose, we would like to test your product. However, a core condition of our research is that the data that your tool would allow to manage stay hosted in Switzerland.


Therefore, could you give us information about this point : where the data are hosted if we use your tool? Would it be possible to use your tool and that the data remain hosted in Switzerland?


Thank you in advance for responding and best regards,


Valérie Pham and Hélène Reymermier
