Repositories to Find or Host Data

Repositories can be used to find existing data which can be analyzed or combined with other data.

Additionally, if you need or want to share your data openly, you will need to identify a repository to host that data. 

Data repositories can vary widely:

  • Multidisciplinary versus specialized
  • Free versus fees
  • Supported data types
  • Policies regarding who may post/share data 
  • Provision of DOIs or other persistent identifiers

Investigate the options carefully to determine what will be the best fit for your data.
