General Purpose Data Repositories
Discipline-Specific Data Repositories
Several options are available for finding a suitable subject-specific repository:
- Within your research community, find out which repositories are used for records similar to yours.
- Search for records in similar research areas. Is there a repository that is already well established, i.e. used frequently?
- Use re3data and use the following filters to get the most relevant and FAIR-compatible results:
«AID» (author identifier) – Choose repositories which allow for the unique identification of authors (e.g. ORCiD).
«Data Licenses» – Choose Repositories which describe the subsequent use of data via licenses (for example, CC).
«Data Access» – Choose Repositories that make data freely accessible (open).
«Metadata Standards» – Choose repositories that use the metadata standards established in your discipline.
«PID» (persistent identifier) – Choose repositories that assign a PID (for example, DOI).
