Data storage occurs throughout the research process. Short term storage of data during the active data collection phase of a research project or ephemeral storage of backup copies of data during sequential steps of data analysis may be accomplished on local computer drives or in a networked environment. Long-term storage or archiving of final data products is more likely to occur in a networked environment or in off-site repositories. All of these storage decisions and steps are an important part of the research process and the data management lifecycle.
There are many discipline-specific archives or repositories available to researchers, and deposit of research data in these repositories may be required by certain publishers or funding agencies. Additionally, UNLV researchers have two unique resources for their consideration: an institutional repository for publications and data, as well as a national supercomputing center.
re3data.org is a tool for helping people identify and locate online repositories of research data. Users and bibliographers create and curate records that describe data repositories that users can search. re3data.org is maintained by an international group of data managers and librarians, and mereged with Databib in 2015.
The NNLM Resources for Data-Driven Discovery database serves as a resource for librarians, library students, information professionals, and interested individuals to learn about and discuss: library roles in data science; fundamentals of domain sciences; emerging trends in supporting biomedical research.
This checklist, produced by the DCC (Digital Curation Centre) is concerned with external third-party repositories that offer a managed service to the research community. It aims to assist research support staff whose task is to help researchers make informed choices about where to deposit data.
Select Data Repository Options for UNLV Researchers
UNLV researchers may choose to share their publications and/or data publicly by depositing the item and accompanying information about each item in the UNLV Institutional Repository. Researchers may specify an embargo period during which each item is not publicly shared.
The National Supercomputing Center for Energy and the Environment can store large or small datasets securely during the data collection, analysis, and/or archive phases of your research project. At the direction of the researcher, all or a portion of the data may be publicly shared.
