share your dataShare Your Data

There are many reasons to share data you create during your project. You may be required by a funding agency or a journal publisher to share data. Your discipline may have a culture of sharing data and pre-print articles. You may wish to speed up the progress of research by contributing to the open science movement.

Regardless of your reasons, sharing data requires you to be aware of mandates that apply to your project, repositories that accept data and are appropriate for your discipline, and any costs and limitations on sensitive data associated with a particular repository. You may also need to balance requirements or recommendations for data sharing with ethical considerations These are a few services that can help:
