Research Data Management: Sharing & Storage

Designed to familiarize faculty and other researchers with the growing literature on research data services at ASU and abroad.

Why Share Your Data?

In addition to funding agency requirements for the preservation of data, there are many reasons to share your data including: 

  • Possible increased citations
  • Encourage enquiry and debate
  • Provide greater exposure to data
  • Possible future research collaboration
  • Provide resources for education and training. 

For more information on sharing data, visit the UK Data Archive's Planning for Sharing page. 

Where can I put my data?

There are a variety of domain repositories that are a natural home for your data. They may have fees associated with storing your files. ASU has in-house options such as the ASU Digital Repository for interdisciplinary research and The Digital Archaeological Record (tDAR), an international archaeological digital archive and repository by the Center for Digital Antiquity.

If you will use the ASU Digital Repository to manage and share your data, we can provide you with boilerplate text for your DMP. 

Search The Registry for Research Data Repositories (re3data.org) to find the best fit for you outside of ASU.
