Data Repositories

In order to preserve, manage, and provide access to your research data, you can deposit your data in a data repository. This has obvious advantages:

  • No handling of data reuse queries and managing data access.
  • Guarantees in terms of sustainable access to data.
  • Make your data discoverable and citable.
  • Make your data FAIR

There is a wide variety of data repositories. Most have the option to publish your dataset using a persistent identifier and some provide the service of long-term preservation. Some repositories host data from various disciplines and others are domain- or discipline specific.
