NC State does not have a ready-for-deposition long-term storage option for research data. It is recommended that you use multiple forms of storage and backup and consider using a disciplinary data repository or a general data repository for long-term curation and sharing of data.
When selecting a data repository to facilitate sharing your data, consider discipline-specific repositories for making your research accessible to your community of interest. For some factors to consider as you choose a repository, see Sharing Data.
Re3Data is a tool that can help you find disciplinary data repositories across hundreds of research areas. This vetted source helps answers questions such as who can deposit data and if there are any specific requirements for depositing data (Re3Data includes repositories indexed in DataBib).
General data repositories:
- DataOne Dash
- Dryad (sciences and medicine)
- Google Drive (NC State's Google Drive provides unlimited storage; see Best Practices)
- ICPSR and OpenICPSR (behavioral and social sciences, NCSU is a member institution)
General code repositories:
