Looking for a Good Repository – DRYAD Might Be Right for You

UBC researchers now have access to another respected data repository. In addition to UBC’s Dataverse and the Canadian Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR), and thanks to institutional funding to cover the deposit fees, DRYAD is now a no-fee option for researchers seeking to deposit data either in conjunction with an article publication or at the end of the research project. UBC Library has put together a useful guide to get you started:


DRYAD is a multidisciplinary repository accepting an extensive list of file formats and offering curation of datasets prior to assigning DOIs to the dataset. DRYAD meets the Open Access requirements for all the Tri-Agencies funding requirements.
