Depositing research data supports the validation and verification of research

UBC Library supports three robust repositories for your data:

UBC Library can create a Dataverse setup for your research group where you can actively manage your data, share it securely with colleagues, provide version control, establish a permanent data citation, get a DOI for your dataset, and more. All Dataverse files are digitally preserved.
  • FRDR – The Federated Research Data Repository, is a Canadian national research data repository. It allows researchers to discover, share, and download Canadian research data.
  • Dryad – Dryad is an international, multi-disciplinary data repository that supports access to data underlying published literature. UBC is a Dryad institutional partner., the Registry of Research Data Repositories, provides information about other available repositories, worldwide.
