Where can I deposit my data? Some useful data repositories

When considering where to deposit your research data there are a large range of options to consider. Funding agencies and journals are increasingly calling for researchers to make their data available.

For UQ researchers you may be able to deposit your data directly into eSpace (more information on this here).

Alternatively, Scientific Data, a new data journal, has recently listed it's recommended generalist and discipline specific data repositories. They are grouped into:

  • Life sciences
  • Chemistry and chemical biology
  • Environmental and geoscience
  • Physics, astrophysics and astronomy
  • General science

If you are looking for an appropriate repository for your data, have a look at the recommendations. Alternatively, refer to the Library's Data Management Guide, contact your Librarian.
