Data Management

Finding a Repository

Your funding agency may require or suggest that you deposit your data in a specific repository. If so, check the Funding Agency Requirements page to learn more. However, if this isn't the case, or if you would like to deposit in more than one repository, there are many to choose from. Search the databases listed below for options that range from the very broad to the very specialized. 

Depositing Data in Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech

Michigan Tech's institutional repository, Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech, could be a great option for making your data accessible to the world. Researchers may either deposit data files or use the repository to link to another location where the data is being managed and preserved, such a discipline-specific or funder-mandated respository. Look through the list of resources from the Van Pelt and Opie Library below to get started. Email library@mtu.edu with any questions.

Registering Data In Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech

For a variety of reasons, researchers may decide against depositing their data in Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech. In these situations, the library urges researchers to consider registering the data in the repository. Registration involves providing the library a reliable link, such as a DOI, to where your data can be accessed, and some information about the data and your project. This information will be included in a "record" that will point users to the data. Registering data in this way helps to make it more findable online, may provide valuable usage statistics, and helps to highlight the great research happening at Michigan Tech.
