Locate a data repository

There are a range of subject-based repositories available, and UWE Bristol has its own Research Data Repository.

Data is usually deposited by the data generator or owner, or a designated person. The data repository takes responsibility for preserving and sharing the data according to any restrictions.

Some funders recommend or suggest data repositories.

re3data is a global registry of research data repositories that covers different academic disciplines, for the long-term storage and access of research data.

It is recommended that, where possible, data is deposited with an existing, recognised data repository. The UWE Bristol Research Data Repository can be used where no suitable national or subject data repositories exist. If you want to use this service, please contact the Library's Research Support Team via lib.rke@uwe.ac.uk.
