How to use the Imperial data catalogue (Symplectic and Spiral)
To make your data, software and code deposits more discoverable you can enter metadata about them into Symplectic. This then feeds through into Spiral, the Imperial College institutional repository. Spiral is indexed by various search engines, including Google Scholar, and will improve the visibility of your work which will in turn make it more citable.
To do this access your Symplectic account and add information about your data, software or code.
Principle Investigators are required to inform the College of the location of published datasets and software via Symplectic in order to meet funder requirements, ensure that valuable assets are not lost, and to help make research outputs more visible.
