Research data policies and services

Other repositories

In areas where well-established subject or data-type specific repositories exist, we ask authors to submit their data to the appropriate resources. If none of the discipline-specific repositories listed above are suitable, we are glad to support the use of other repositories if they are able to mint DataCite DOIs for hosted data, and share data under open terms of use (for example the CC0 waiver). These might include institutional, project specific or national archives, which only accept data deposition from researchers associated with a specific institution, project, or nation respectively.
