We are pleased to announce the launch of Dash – a new self-service tool from the UC Curation Center (UC3) and partners that allows researchers to describe, upload, and share their research data. Dash helps researchers perform the following tasks:
· Prepare data for curation by reviewing best practice guidance for the creation or acquisition of digital research data.
· Select data for curation through local file browse or drag-and-drop operation.
· Describe data in terms of the DataCite metadata schema.
· Identify data with a persistent digital object identifier (DOI) for permanent citation and discovery.
· Preserve, manage, and share data by uploading to a public Merritt repository collection.
· Discover and retrieve data through faceted search and browse.

Some of these comics might be sensitive to their viewers. I would advise viewer’s discretion. This is not a comprehensive list but it provides a meaningful insight into the mysterious world of the webcomics.
