Sharing Data

Data Repositories

Research data repositories are a common solution to sharing research data. There are multidisciplinary, subject-based, and special purpose repositories available to researchers worldwide. is a global registry of research data repositories that can help you narrow down to repositories that are relevant to you and your research. The Research Data Repositories guide provides additional information for finding repositories, as well as descriptions of some popular multipurpose data repositories.

If there is not a subject or multipurpose data repository available, your datasets may be eligible to deposit in Drexel's institutional repository, IDEA.

For help finding a repository or for more information about depositing datasets in IDEA, email or contact your liaison librarian.
