How to upload files to Dataverse

  1. Acquire the DVUploader from here a Github release here

  2. Set up metadata and such on Dataverse, then submit/save your dataset without adding files. We will add files below. First, though, we need a doi. Submitting/saving will make a doi.

  3. Acquire your API key (upper right under your account picture in Dataverse).

  4. Use, the following command to upload:

    java -jar DVUploader-v1.0.5.jar -recurse -server= -did=doi:10.7910/XXX/5XXXYN -key=72341abe-634c-424a-ac33-ca234cef23ab directory_with_files
