Research Data Management: Store Data

Managing, preserving, and sharing research data.

Store Data

Submitting your data to a repository protects your investment of time and resources while preserving your research contribution to the scientific community. Repositories can help you:

  • Manage your data
  • Cite your data by supplying a persistent identifier
  • Facilitate discovery of your data
  • Preserve your data for the long-run

  • The Registry of Research Data Repositories provides a search tool to help find an appropriate repository for your data. Not all of these respositories take researcher-produced datasets or ensure long-term preservation of your data, so contact them for more details.  Consult with a member of our Research Data Management Services team to help you select a data repository suitable to your needs.
