Researchers have an increasing need to share their research data, in order to:

  • Comply with funder or journal requirements
  • Foster replication of research
  • Promote their work

You have many repository options for sharing your research data, including DSpace@MIT and subject repositories in your field.

If you’re looking for a self-publishing model where you have a high level of involvement in managing your data, Dataverse may be a good option for you. This year, Dataverse launched a new version 4.0, with features including:

  • Customizable branding to make the system look like your website
  • Ability to track the use of your data
  • Versioning
  • Auto-generated citations and DOIs
  • Templates for easier deposit
  • Ability to perform online statistical analysis of data sets in supported formats.

For more information, see the Harvard Dataverse Network Deposit Guidelines. To get started, create an account and follow the Dataverse User Guide.
