The Dataverse Project is a community and an open source web application to share, preserve, cite, explore and analyze research data. It facilitates making data available to others, and allows you to replicate others work. Researchers, data authors, publishers, data distributors, and affiliated institutions all receive appropriate credit.

A Dataverse repository hosts multiple Dataverse collections. Each Dataverse collection contains datasets or other collections, and each dataset contains descriptive metadata and data files (including documentation and code that accompany the data).

The Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University leads the development of the Dataverse software.
