UMIACS offers viable methods of publishing data, including reports, papers, and more. This page serves as a guide to the best practices and guidelines when publishing a paper with UMIACS.

Best Practices

When publishing anything, the following are important to consider:

  • Be sure that any/all data is published via a faculty member's account, not a student's (this is especially important when the data in question is meant to be permanent). This will reduce the chance of any broken links once the student leaves and their account is archived.
  • Make use of OBJ (see below) to store your data.
  • Make sure UMIACS is credited on any papers that contain UMIACS URLs.

OBJ Usage

The use of our Object Storage can be very useful in publishing websites and data. See OBJbox and The OBJ help page for more information.
