What You'll Find in This Guide
Quick & Dirty Tools
As a resource to help with those responding to the White House mandate on data sharing (see our blog post), the National Library of Medicine has put together a table of NIH-supported data repositories that accept submissions of appropriate data for reuse.
Try these links for quick solutions to other common data management challenges:
Data Management Planning:
Online tool to assist in writing data management plans for NSF, NIH, NEH, IMLS, or GBMF. UW is a participating institution; login using your NetID.
SPARC provides an up-to-date listing of data sharing policies by funding organization.
Data Storage, Preservation, & Archiving:
Registry of Research Data Repositories
Search tool for identifying and locating repositories for research data. (Merged with Databib in 2015.)
University of Washington's institutional repository hosted by the Libraries. You can store and share your data by self-depositing datasets up to 10GB. Contact us for more info or for datasets larger than 10GB.
SQLShare is a secure and easy way to manage, share, and manipulate your research data. Just upload your data through a browser, write queries in SQL, and share the results with anyone.
Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) with DataCite
The UW Libraries provides access to the digital object identifiers via DataCite. It is available to individuals or research groups affiliated with the University of Washington.
ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier for researchers that distinguishes you from every other researcher and supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.
Data Management Resources
There are resources on campus to help UW researchers with various stages of the data management cycle. Also included are resources outside the UW for general guidance on data management that we've found to be the most useful.
