Research Data Management

University of Regina Dataverse

Dataverse is an open source web application to share, preserve, cite, explore and analyze research data. It facilitates making data available to others, and allows replicating others' work. It has a robust version control and allows granular access to data files. Dataverse is excellent place for work-in-progress data files or files toward the end of the research data lifecycle.

Our Dataverse is located on the Borealis Portal server, the same location as Dataverses at all Ontario universities, as well as other Canadian institutions, including the University of Calgary.

Federated Research Data Repository

The Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR) is a scalable, federated platform for RDM and discovery. Researchers from Canadian post-secondary institutions can use FRDR to curate, discover, cite, and share research data. FRDR works well for Canadian researchers with large datasets and provides up to 3TB of storage for free.

Other Data Depositories

There are other options for data deposit as well. Your decision on where to deposit your data will depend on several factors, including the amount of data your are depositing, the conventions in your discipline, and the requirements of funders/publishers.
