Datasea is a Spanish initiative to improve the know-how and best practices in research data storage and curation. We built the knowledge basis to study good practices worldwide. Once we done this, we wanted to know the behaviours, tools, expectations and needs of our researchers, scholars and research managers. So, we performed two surveys, one for a quantitative approach and other for the qualitative one. Afterwards, we began an advocacy campaign, with workshops, guidelines and conferences in Spanish. At last, we collected in ODiSEA the journals that are accepting supplementary material and their policies about it. The final aim of the project is to build a discovery tool (OpenDataScience) able to search enriched files into the URLs of the journals.
