Users can search across all published datasets and files in the Emory Dataverse by using the search box found at the top of the page that says: Search this dataverse...
There is also an Advanced Search link that will take users to a screen with more fields to search across all the information provided for datasets and files in the Emory Dataverse.
The basic and advanced searches will only retrieve results of datasets that have been released to the public. Datasets that are still in draft mode will not show up in the search results. Also, while authors might release information about datasets, they could still restrict access to some or all the associated files. For more information on restricted files, see the page on Restricted Data.
After searching and finding a dataset of interest, click on the name of the dataset. On the dataset page, you can see the title, citation, and description. Below that basic information, there are tabs for the Files, Metadata, Terms, and Versions information for the dataset.
All files associated with a dataset are listed under the Files tab. If there are a large number of files, use Search this dataset... to search only within the dataset.
The light blue box at the top of the dataset page contains the dataset citation. Use the Cite Dataset link to export the dataset citation in multiple formats.
