Ithaka S+R: “Data Repository Platforms: A Primer”

From a Post by Nicole Betancourt at Ithaka S+R:

Since there is a robust landscape of research data sharing spaces, we decided to conduct exploratory, high-level research on a number of data repositories, primarily to inform our own data deposit protocols. We regularly deposit data from the US Faculty Survey, Library Director Survey, as well as several other research projects with ICPSR. Recognizing that our research on a variety of characteristics of data repositories may yield utility for other researchers, today we are publishing a summary of our findings.

Repository platforms included in the summary report are:

  • Dryad
  • Figshare
  • Harvard Dataverse
  • Mendeley Data
  • Roper Center for Public Opinion Research
  • Zenodo
