dataset_atom {dataverse}R Documentation

View dataset (SWORD)

Description

View a SWORD (possibly unpublished) dataset “statement”

Usage

dataset_atom(
  dataset,
  key = Sys.getenv("DATAVERSE_KEY"),
  server = Sys.getenv("DATAVERSE_SERVER"),
  ...
)

dataset_statement(
  dataset,
  key = Sys.getenv("DATAVERSE_KEY"),
  server = Sys.getenv("DATAVERSE_SERVER"),
  ...
)

Arguments

dataset

A dataset DOI (or other persistent identifier), an object of class “dataset_atom” or “dataset_statement”, or an appropriate and complete SWORD URL.

key

A character string specifying a Dataverse server API key. If one is not specified, functions calling authenticated API endpoints will fail. Keys can be specified atomically or globally using Sys.setenv("DATAVERSE_KEY" = "examplekey").

server

A character string specifying a Dataverse server. Multiple Dataverse installations exist, with "dataverse.harvard.edu" being the most major. The server can be defined each time within a function, or it can be set as a default via an environment variable. To set a default, run Sys.setenv("DATAVERSE_SERVER" = "dataverse.harvard.edu") or add ⁠DATAVERSE_SERVER = "dataverse.harvard.edu⁠ in one's .Renviron file (usethis::edit_r_environ()), with the appropriate domain as its value.

...

Additional arguments passed to an HTTP request function, such as GET, POST, or DELETE.

Details

These functions are used to view a dataset by its persistent identifier. dataset_statement will contain information about the contents of the dataset, whereas dataset_atom contains “metadata” relevant to the SWORD API.

Value

A list. For dataset_atom, an object of class “dataset_atom”.
