Research Data Repository Options
- Principal Investigators at CWRU can use ITS Advanced Research Computing data services to identify a data storage solution for data created under your data management and data sharing plans.
- Use an existing discipline-specific database, data repository, data enclave, or archive store and disseminate the data. See the Data Repositories List page for additional options.
- Use the open-access services of professional societies and journals that publish the results of research.
- The American Institute of Physics (AIP) has a depository for material that is supplementary to papers appearing in journals published by or through AIP. Appropriate items for deposit include data tables.
- Use existing institutional solutions or “cloud” storage.
- Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) at the University of Michigan maintains a data archive of more than 500,000 files of research in the social sciences.
- San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California, San Diego, offers cloud storage services at a rate structure geared to the budgeting concerns of grants.
- Cornell Center for Advanced Computing (CAC) “Red Cloud”
- Amazon S3 Web Services provide a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve data any time from anywhere on the web.
- Within the CWRU infrastructure, storage can be arranged on Digital Case, the CWRU Google Docs, or as an add-on to existing accounts already using network storage.
Note: There may be some administrative/account maintenance fees in addition to physical storage fees. Costs should be properly accounted for in the grant proposal budget.
