Choosing a repository for your data
You may wish to deposit your data in a discipline-specific repository to maximise the likelihood of it being both discovered and useful to others. Different repositories may specify different requirements for data deposited that you may need to consider such as:
- preferred data formats to facilitate long-term access and preservation
- minimum documentation and metadata standards to ensure your data can be discovered by others
- clear acknowledgement of licensing, access and sharing rights for your data.
