Current (searchable) Repositories

  • dbGap - The database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) was developed to archive and distribute the data and results from studies that have investigated the interaction of genotype and phenotype in Humans.
  • Dryad - Dryad is an international repository of data underlying peer-reviewed scientific and medical literature, particularly data for which no specialized repository exists.
  • ImmPort - The Immunology Database and Analysis Portal (ImmPort) archives clinical study and trial data generated by NIAID/DAIT-funded investigators.
  • Harvard Dataverse - Harvard Dataverse Repository is a research data repository running on the open source Dataverse software. The repository is fully open to the public, allows upload and browsing of data from all fields of research, and is free for all researchers worldwide. Harvard Dataverse Repository receives support from Harvard University, public and private grants, and an emergent consortium model.
  • Borealis - The Canadian Dataverse Repository, is a bilingual, multidisciplinary, secure, Canadian research data repository, supported by academic libraries and research institutions across Canada. Borealis supports open discovery, management, sharing, and preservation of Canadian research data.

Future Repositories

  • Figshare - figshare is a repository where users can make all of their research outputs available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner.
  • The Cancer Imaging Archive - TCIA is a service which de-identifies and hosts a large archive of medical images of cancer accessible for public download. The data are organized as “collections”; typically patients’ imaging related by a common disease (e.g. lung cancer), image modality or type (MRI, CT, digital histopathology, etc) or research focus.
  • UNC Dataverse - UNC Dataverse is a data repository service for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) research community and its partners.
  • Mendeley Data - Mendeley Data is a multidisciplinary, free-to-use open repository specialised for research data. Files of any format can be uploaded and shared with the research community following the FAIR data principles.
  • Zenodo - Generalist research data repository built and developed by OpenAIRE and CERN. It was developed to aid Open Science and is built on open source code. Zenodo helps researchers receive credit by making the research results citable and through OpenAIRE integrates them into existing reporting lines to funding agencies like the European Commission.
  • ICPSR - ICPSR, or Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR), provides leadership and training in data access, curation, and methods of analysis for the social science research community. Maintaining over 250,000 files of research in the social and behavioral sciences, ICPSR hosts 21 specialized collections of data in education, aging, criminal justice, substance abuse, terrorism, and other fields.
  • SPARC - The NIH Common Fund’s Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC) program aims to transform our understanding of nerve-organ interactions with the intent of advancing bioelectronic medicine towards treatments that change lives. The SPARC repository was developed as part of the NIH SPARC initiative.
  • BioSystics-AP - Microphysiology Systems Database, now called the BioSystics Analytics Platform™, captures, manages, analyzes, shares, and computationally models complex data sets from in vitro experimental models, animal studies, and human clinical data, creating actionable knowledge and predicting biological outcomes that optimizes precision medicine, including preclinical trials.
  • Johns Hopkins Research Data Repository - The Johns Hopkins Research Data Repository (formerly the JHU Data Archive) is administered by professional curators at JHU Data Services, who will work with depositors to enable future discovery and reuse of your data, and ensure your data is Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR).
  • Texas Data Repository - Welcome to the Texas Data Repository, a research data management system for Texas Digital Library (TDL) member institutions.
  • Dartmouth Dataverse - A Dataverse by Dartmouth College.
  • Abacus Data Network - Data repository collaboration involving Libraries at Simon Fraser University (SFU), the University of British Columbia (UBC), the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) and the University of Victoria (UVic).
  • Qualitative Data Repository - QDR is a dedicated archive for storing and sharing digital data (and accompanying documentation) generated or collected through qualitative and multi-method research in the social sciences and related disciplines.
  • UCLA Dataverse - Dataverse from UCLA.
  • BMRB - The BioMagResBank (BMRB) is the resource that provides access to the information on biomolecules derived from nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
  • Brain Observatory Storage Service & Database - BossDB is a volumetric database for 3D and 4D neuroscience data.
  • The DANDI Archive - The BRAIN Initiative archive for publishing and sharing neurophysiology data including electrophysiology, optophysiology, and behavioral time-series, and images from immunostaining experiments.
  • GigaDB - Data repository supporting scientific publications in the Life/Biomedical Sciences domain. GigaDB organises and curates data from individually publishable units into datasets, which are provided openly and in as FAIR manner as possible for the global research community.
  • - A repository of all available data sets with a Socrata Open Data API. Available categories include: Administrative, Biomonitoring, Child Vaccinations, Flu Vaccinations, Health Statistics, Injury & Violence, Motor Vehicle, NCHS, NNDSS, Pregnancy & Vaccination, STDs, Smoking & Tobacco Use, Teen Vaccinations, Traumatic Brain Injury, Vaccinations and Web Metrics.
  • ArrayExpress - The functional genomics data collection (ArrayExpress), stores data from high-throughput functional genomics experiments, and provides data for reuse to the research community.
