A service of the ICPSR data archive, openICPSR is a research data sharing service for the social and behavioral sciences which provides:
- Distribution through an established network of over 740 research institutions with powerful search tools and search engine indexing, enabling your data to be discovered and cited
- Reliability of a trusted, sustainable organization with over 50 years’ experience storing research data
- Review by professional data curators
- The ability to accept and disseminate sensitive or restricted-use data
In order to make your data publicly available to others, openICPSR charges a deposit fee (different levels of service are available). Normally this cost would be written into a grant proposal when planning your data management. But if you have data right now to share, for a limited time through the end of the calendar year, you can self-deposit your data in openICPSR with no fee!
