Select a data repository


What is a data repository? A data repository is an online storage location for your data and may also provide long term preservation.


Why use a data repository?

  • Your data set will be easy to find online so other researchers (or you!) can re-use it.
  • Lack of maintenance and upkeep on your part
  • Gives your data a unique identifier (such as a DOI or permanent URL). This identifier is then used to cite your data set. More citations = greater research impact!
  • Possible long term preservation: Some data repositories are committed to providing long term preservation of the data sets deposited there. But carefully read the repository‚Äôs online documentation to determine if they provide long-term preservation.
