Data repositories

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, we advise authors to use one of the generalist repositories listed below:

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.
