UMD Data Collection

Permanent URI for this collection

University of Maryland faculty and researchers can upload their research products in DRUM for rapid dissemination, global visibility and impact, and long-term preservation. Depositing data in DRUM can assist in compliance with data management and sharing requirements from the NSF, NIH, and other funding agencies and journals. You can also deposit code, documents, images, supplemental material, and other research products. DRUM tracks views and downloads of your research, and all DRUM records are indexed by Google and Google Scholar. Additionally, DRUM assigns permanent DOIs for your items, making it easy for other researchers to cite your work.
