CREDIT suite helps authors to upload, import & link data-sets to the Reuse Recipe Document. Authors have the option to upload their document to a repository known as Zenodo and publish them when the Reuse Recipe Document is published. Authors can also import already published data from Zenodo and Figshare. Before importing data-set files author must have published the data-set files in the respective repositories and license them according their own preferences or as recommended by their publisher/Institute/Funder.

The author can import the data-set file from the following options,

  1. In a institutional repository

  2. In a field specific repository

  3. Figshare

  4. Zenodo

Authors can also upload and publish the data-set file on Zenodo.
