Data Repository Finder

1. Are you looking for a repository managed by Utrecht University? More info

When a repository is managed by Utrecht University, you are offered additional services. Like prior to publishing the data will be reviewed by RDM Support (in case of DataverseNL) or by your appointed data manager (in case of YoDA).

2. Will you publish data under access restriction? More info

Access restrictions allows you to publish the descriptive metadata with information about your study but requires users to contact you to gain access to the data. This is often necessary when publishing personal data (information which can identify an individual). Alternatively, data can be put under access restriction if any other conditions need to be met or checked prior to granting access.

3. Are you looking for a repository with the option to deposit for free? More info

Whether a repository is free or not often depends on the size of the dataset you are publishing. Most repositories accept datasets for free if they are under 10GB. Please check the information available for each repository to check whether the size of your datatset would incur costs.

4. Do you wish to have the freedom to choose your own data usage licence? More info

Repositories may differ in the range of  data usage licence you can choose from.

Most repositories offer a range of licenses you can choose from or let you choose freely under what license you wish to make your data available.

5. Do you want to be able to create a private URL? More info

Creating a private URL can facilitate peer review of your data prior to publication by enabling reviewers to gain access to your dataset via a private link. It can also be used to give access to your dataset prior to publication to other collaborators that may not have access to the repository.

This Data Repository Finder can help you choose the data repository that fits your needs when sharing and publishing your research data. For more information you can consult the Guide Publishing and sharing data or contact RDM Support.
