All published data can be found for free at http://dvn.fudan.edu.cn.The platform is developed in cooperation with Harvard University’s Dataverse Network. Registered users can also apply to authors via the platform for information not fully publicized, Fudan said.
The platform has been tested since June with 1,377 data sets stored by Fudan researchers and 57 now completely open to the public.
More researching findings are expected to appear after its official launch, the school said.
