Once you've found a dataset that might be interesting, how can you take it to the next level to really see how useful it is for your research? Let's click-in on a dataset and see!
At the top of each dataset page, you'll see the header details as well as some different tabbed views. The header is comprised of the dataset owner, dataset name, whether the dataset is public or private, date the dataset was last updated, and last but not least, the license type.
In the tabbed options you'll find Details, where you'll see a short description and summary about the specific dataset (if provided) as well as some quick views of the files that dataset contains. More on that in a bit. Next is the Collaborators tab, where you can view and add people with different levels of access to work within a dataset. The Query tab is where you can really start to dig into the specifics of the dataset, all without having to download any files if you're not ready, and finally is the Discussion tab, where you can engage with the dataset owner, collaborators and share helpful notes for other users looking at this dataset.
Let's take a closer look at the Details view. Here, as mentioned, you can see a short description as well as a summary of the dataset if it was provided by the dataset owner. Below the summary, we get to the files contained in the dataset and visual representations of each where supported. For .csv files, for example, you'll see a view similar to the image below:
