Lessons learned

  • The Registry of Research Data Repositories, re3data, is a great place to start looking for reliable data repositories. But not all repositories indexed in re3data are 100% reliable.
  • Re3data will allow you to find data repositories within a specific field or specific country.
  • The registry will allow you to access lots of information regarding the data repositories, which allows you to quickly compare them and select the one that best fits your requirements.
