Discipline-Specific Data Repositories
A growing number of subject-specific repositories of research data exist. Repositories vary in their restrictions on data depositing and access. The following two resources may be helpful in locating data repositories in your discipline:
"a working document, initiated via a collaboration between the British Library, BioMed Central
and the Digital Curation Centre
, that aims to capture the growing number of repositories for research data."
Registry or Research Data Repositories (re3data)
"re3data.org is a global registry of research data repositories that covers research data repositories from different academic disciplines. It presents repositories for the permanent storage and access of data sets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions."
"figshare allows users to upload any file format to be previewed in the browser so that any research output, from posters and presentations to datasets and code, can be disseminated in a way that the current scholarly publishing model does not allow"
Clemson's Institutional Repository
Clemson University Libraries are proud to present TigerPrints, an institutional repository (IR) of scholarly works from our university's students, faculty, and staff.
If more information on Clemson's IR is needed to create a Data Management Plan for a grant submission, please email CUdatamgmt@LISTS.CLEMSON.EDU.
Privacy, Confidentiality, and Intellectual Property
It's important to understand what obligations you as a researcher have to protect your subjects' rights, as well as to understand who has rights to the data you produce.
Research involving human subjects requires prior approval and is subject to review and oversight by Clemson's Institutional Review Board. Restrictions may apply to managing and sharing research data.
The Clemson University Intellectual Property Policy (PDF) addresses ownership of research data or results created by an employee.
