Publish

Sharing your valuable research data after the project is complete is an avenue that more and more researchers are taking. Some publishers are increasingly requiring authors to make available the data that support their results published in accepted articles:

Sharing data allows new research that builds on what has come before, without other researchers having to duplicate the same work. It also legitimizes your work and allows others to verify your research and conclusions. Ultimately, sharing your data serves as a public good to academia and future research.

UBC Library hosted solutions: At UBC Library, we host and support Dataverse, a cross-disciplinary data repository supporting online management and access to data

External repositories: re3data.org is a directory tool for helping people identify and locate either disciplinary or institutional repository to share research data. Your subject librarian can advise on available repositories in your field.
