Data Repositories

Discipline Repositories and Archives

Researchers may store their data in online repositories; sites that specialize in providing storage for data and other documents (such as published or unpublished articles, presentations, book chapters, or reports) . Some repositories are for specific disciplines or subjects, other repositories store data and research products for researchers belonging to a specific institution. One such institutional repository is BU’s OpenBU.

Locating Repositories

The Open Access Directory maintains a thorough list of digital repositories by subject area.

SPARC offers a page pointing to lists of both institutional and subject repositories.
