As of version 1.81 RSpace enables integration with Dryad. The Dryad Digital Repository is a curated resource that makes research data discoverable, freely reusable, and citable.

Exporting Files to Dryad
Exporting RSpace files to Dryad is extremely easy with our Dryad integration:
- In the ‘Workspace’ select the file you wish to export
- Click on the ‘Export’ button that appears under the menu; a pop up window like the one in the screen shot below will appear
- Select a format and check the 'Export to a repository' option. Then, click 'NEXT'
- Fill out the required fields. These vary depending on the format you selected on the previous step. Then, click 'NEXT'
- Select ‘Dryad’ as the repository you wish to submit your export to and fill out the required fields. If the DMPTool Integration is enabled, you will be able to associate the export with a DMP you have imported, which will automatically add a link to the export in the "related works" section of the DMP. Once you are done, click 'EXPORT'.
- If successful you will receive a notification within RSpace containing a clickable link to the dataset in the repository (notifications can be accessed by clicking on the Globe icon in the menu bar)
