APO Data hosting and testing now underway

open data imageThanks to an Australian National Data Service (ANDS) grant the APO team has been working on setting up our repository to be able to host datasets as well as documents, audio, video and other content. We have been able to do this for sometime and already have around 100 datasets available however our new system provides better metadata and relationships that will allow us to easily relate data to publications internally and eventually to external content.

We are now in the testing phase and would encourage anyone with data relevant to policy and practice issues or datasets related to reports or content that is being published and disseminated through APO to try uploading your data as well.

If you would like any assistance or would be willing to be part of a testing process that we are undertaking with Richard Ferrers from ANDS please email editors@apo.org.au
