Research Data Management & Sharing: Subject-Specific Repositories and Standards

This guide provides resources on research data management and sharing.

Subject-Specific Repositories and Standards

Many subject-specific repositories and standards exist, but it can be hard to discover them. On this page we list some of the standards and repositories, and we will continue to add to this page as repositories and standards are developed. If no subject-specific repository exists, we recommend you use the UR Research Repository (URRR).

Please feel free to reach out to your subject librarian for assistance in finding subject-specific repositories and standards.
