Use these directories of repositories to identify discipline-specific repositories, if any exist. You can always use a generalist repository, but check these directories, refer to any publication guidelines, and ask your colleagues or professional organizations if there are more targeted repositories where your data can live with other similar research data.
A succinct list of repositories and databases for open data sorted by subject, hosted by the School of Library and Information Science at Simmons College and supervised by an independent editorial board.
This table lists NIH-supported data repositories that make data accessible for reuse. Most accept submissions of appropriate data from NIH-funded investigators (and others), but some restrict data submission to only those researchers involved in a specific research network.
If using a domain repository is not possible, use this chart to compare some of the main generalist repositories to determine which is the best for you.
These major "generalist" (interdisciplinary) repositories host data from any discipline. Check for any disciplinary repositories using the directories of repositories listed under the next section on this page.
An open source web application to share, preserve, cite, explore and analyze research data. It facilitates making data available to others, and allows you to replicate others work. Researchers, data authors, publishers, data distributors, and affiliated institutions all receive appropriate credit.
A repository where users can make all of their research outputs available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner. Allows users to upload any file format to be made visualizable in the browser so that figures, datasets, media, papers, posters, presentations, and filesets can be disseminated.
Social, behavioral, and health sciences research data. ICPSR deposits are available to ICPSR member institutions (not fully open). For a fee, ICPSR curates data to maximize access and ensure long-term preservation.
Locally managed, open source software to collaborate on code. Manage git repositories with fine grained access controls that keep your code secure. Perform code reviews and enhance collaboration with merge requests. Each project can also have an issue tracker and a wiki.
