changes to some of the metadata fields or to any file(s) in the dataset will trigger a new version (see below).
Toedita public item head to My data,hover over the item you want to edit, andclick on the edit penthat appears next to thesize. The metadata editing form will then come up.
Replacing/deleting a file
To replace a file, you will need to first delete the file, and then upload a new one. deleting the file does not permanently delete it!! The file will always be available as a version (see below)
At the top of the editing window, to the right of the filename, click the X to delete the file.
Drag and drop the replacement file into the editing window.
When files or metadata are deleted from a published item, it will simply trigger a new version. The deleted files or metadata will still be publicly available by viewing the earlier version.
Bulk edit multiple items
Bulk editing is especially handy when you want to apply a keyword to multiple items (which won't trigger a new version!) or if you want to apply or change a license.
In My Data check the box next to the items that you wish to edit and then from the Actions drop-down menu, select Edit in Batch
The next screen that comes up will list the fields that you can edit on the left. Select the field you wish to bulk edit, and check the radio button next to Prepend, Append, Replace, or Delete as needed. When done, hit Save all changes in the lower right.
Delete an unpublished item (metadata and files)
only unpublished items may be completely deleted (both metadata and files)
Edit your item as above - you should see a button near the bottom left of the metadata editing form to Delete item
automatic syncing of a Github repo when there is a new release
manual syncing of a Github repo to update the files
Each version has their own DOI and can be cited independently. The version DOI is created from the base DOI with the addition of a v<n> suffix, where n is the version number. All the (versioning) rules will apply if the items are going through a curation process. The only difference is that new versions or updates to existing versions are created only when the request is approved.
Each version may be cited separately, and will include the metadata that was present at the time the version was published, e.g., if an author was added, the original version won't contain that author name. If a file is "deleted" it will always be available in the version when it was published.
