So you want to put your research data into a repository. Maybe you anticipate citations and credit from other researchers; maybe you practice open science; maybe you want to avoid the hassle of responding to a data sharing request five years from now. Or maybe data sharing is required by your journal or funder.
In this workshop, we’ll go over some key questions to consider as you choose the right repository for your project.
- What are the advantages of domain-specific repositories and interdisciplinary repositories?
- Can you maintain some control over access and reuse of your data?
- What features facilitate the discovery, re-use, and citation of your data?
By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to discuss the pros and cons of data repositories including OSF, figshare, and NCBI (including PubMed Central’s new data deposit options), and you’ll know how to use re3data.org to find disciplinary repositories.
