In the next version of DVN we plan to introduce the idea of subnetworks which will allow groups of dataverses to be displayed under a common network-like branding within a larger dataverse network.  Please see the attached document for more details and provide any feedback or suggestions here.

I don't have much to add except to say that I'm thinking hard about
the implications subnetworks will have on search*. This makes sense to

"When a user is in the context of a subnetwork any search that is
performed will return studies that are owned by dataverses in that
subnetwork along with any studies from outside dataverses that are
included in collections."

I'll also just mention that the ticket about subnetwork functionality is here:

How do people feel about things moving on the homepage for a dataverse

If you look at the image just below 'Mockup of Dataverse Network root
network page with a new section to access the various "Dataverse
Subnetworks"' at
you'll see an subnetwork called "Astronomy" with three little dots
under it to indicate it's 1 of 3 subnetworks. And there are little
arrows to indicate that you can see the other subnetworks if you

Now that I've pulled in the latest code, I see that I don't even have
to click... The subnetworks scroll by automatically. Somehow my lizard
brain is distracted and somewhat bothered by all this motion on the
page though.

Just throwing this out there...

I agree with everything "sbmarks" says about subnetwork administration...

And I want to know what the subnetwork (homepage and dataverse) URLs are going to look like, as well as whether handle/DOI minting will be subnetwork specific...

The URLs were worked out to look like:


That way, the user sees in the URL, that they are looking at a subset of dataverses, within the DVN.

Subnetwork-specific identifier minting is a great idea as well.
