Datasets: After Six Months, Mendeley Data Leaves Beta

From the Mendeley Blog:

2016-04-29_10-20-07If you haven’t heard of Mendeley Data before, it’s a new product that allows anyone who has data from experiments to publish it online and get a DOI for it so that it is citable. We launched the beta version 6 months ago. We’ve released many new features over those months, in fact we’ve had 80 releases. So now we’re leaving beta, as a vote of confidence for Mendeley Data being stable, robust and fully featured.

Some of the new things we’ve introduced over the last few months are an expanded category selection (we now have over 4,000 categories to choose from!), the ability to embargo a dataset so that the files are only available after a certain period of time, and some new fields such as “steps to reproduce” which allows you to explain how to re-create the dataset. We’ve got lots more in store, but we think now is the best time for you to try uploading your datasets.
