Repositories to Host Your Data
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
Investigate the options carefully to determine what will be the best fit for your data.
