fiddle is a free, open source “matchmaking” tool designed to help researchers to identify the publication format that will work best for a particular dataset that may be hard to publish in traditional journals.
Researchers can use this tool to quickly compare characteristics of different publications formats and search for a format that best meets their needs. Once users have selected a publication format, they can click on links to visit websites of relevant publishers or platforms, or see examples of this particular format. The tool also includes a link to a brief video tutorial.
