Data Repositories

Data Repositories enable researchers to self archive their data and make and make it available for other researchers to access your data and re-use it. This is a requirement of many funders

They also preserve your data and curate it according to certain community standards.

There are different types of Data Repositories including:

Institutional data repositories
General purpose or multidisciplinary repositories
Domain or discipline specific data repositories

Google Dataset Search

Repository Directories

A global registry of research data repositories for the preservation and access of datasets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions.


OpenDOAR lists and categorises academic open access research repositories. The aim is to provide a comprehensive and authoritative list of such repositories for end-users who wish to find particular archives or who wish to break down repositories by locale, content or other measures.
