Share your data
Sharing your data publicly (usually online) makes it available for other researchers to re-use. Data sharing is becoming increasingly mandated by institutions, funding agencies and publishers.
Data preservation is a series of managed activities necessary to ensure continued access to your research data as long as necessary.
Deposit in a data repository: A data repository makes your data publicly available online. Most data repositories contain data related to a specific discipline but some are discipline-agnostic.
