CORD turns five!
We officially launched Cranfield Online Research Data (CORD) on 24 May 2016, so it’s CORD’s 5th birthday today!
CORD has passed several significant milestones over the last five years, with more than 1000 research data items added and over 1 million views.
In addition to its role in sharing and preserving your research data, CORD can be used in a number of different ways you may not be aware of. Examples include using it as a platform for group projects involving multiple institutions (Private collaboration), to display the outputs from a particular project or to enable assessment, as an archive for research on internal servers that would benefit from being made publicly available, or for conference materials.
Find out how to take advantage of any of these uses in the blog post Four ways of using CORD you may not know about.
Top three stats:
- 1127 items have been added to CORD.
- CORD items have had a total of 1,139,373 views.
