Where should I deposit my data?
A data repository is a storage space for researchers to deposit data sets associated with their research. If you’re an author seeking to comply with a journal data sharing policy, you’ll need to identify a suitable repository for your data.
Where possible, we recommend submitting your data to a repository relevant to your discipline, and one which is community-credited. You can use FAIRsharing and re3data.org to search for a suitable repository – both provide a list of certified data repositories.
For cases where there is no subject-specific repository, you may wish to consider some of the generalist repositories below:
- ANDS contributing repositories
- Dryad Digital Repository
- Harvard Dataverse
- Mendeley Data
- Open Science Framework
- Code Ocean (with code)
We encourage authors to select a data repository that issues a persistent identifier, preferably a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), and has established a robust preservation plan to ensure the data is preserved in perpetuity. Additionally, we highly encourage researchers to consider the FAIR Data Principles when depositing data.
Taylor & Francis Online now fully supports ScholeXplorer data linking making it much easier for you to establish a permanent link between your published article and its associated data. When you deposit your data in a ScholeXplorer recognised repository a link to your data will automatically appear on Taylor & Francis Online when your associated article is published. This enables researchers to easily navigate between your published article and the associated data set. Visit our supplemental material page for more information.
