Research Data Support is an optional Springer Nature service available to researchers who have datasets they want to share, and make citable and findable. We provide a secure portal for data upload, and data and metadata are curated and improved by professional Research Data Editors.

  • I had a really great experience using Springer Nature Research Data Support. The process was straightforward, and the team were very helpful at guiding me through the process. The resultant data package is very easy to access and navigate. I opted to use the service because I wanted to make sure that the data accompanying my Nature paper are as accessible as possible.

  • Although I already uploaded my associated code and data on my personal GitHub profile, I decided to submit all associated files. Our correspondence was prompt and highly professional, which made the whole process smooth and manageable. Overall, I received a great level of service and found the entire experience of using the Springer Nature Research Data Support a very positive one.

  • After a recommendation from an Editor, I decided to use this service. I had tried to use another, local service but the process was complicated and I gave up. I found the process of Springer Nature Research Data Support easy to understand and the team replied promptly with enough detail regarding my questions. The data output is of good quality and I am sure everyone will be able to easily use the service.​​​​​​​
