Data repositories are managed digital environments that specialize in collecting, describing, sharing, and tracking research data. Sharing data in a repository is a best practice and is often required by Federal agencies.
Below you will find links to a selective list of repositories. Each repository's requirements and scope are different. Some have no, or very few rules, while others provide in-depth review before accepting data or only accept data from certain disciplines. In general, while repositories that have few, or no, requirements are convenient and easy to use they may not be the best home for your data.
If none of the repositories listed on this page meet your needs you may want to search for a data repository on re3data.org or contact your subject librarian for help.
