Publishing Data

Publishing and Preserving Your Data

Publishing and preserving your data allows further access to your datasets and is recognized as good practices by researchers and institutions. Datasets can be published as scholarly products, either linked to journal articles or as a standalone data object with scholarly value. When published with a digital object identifier (DOI), datasets can be easily discovered and cited in other researchers' work, increasing the value and impact of your research, as well as ensuring research integrity. The Library and Research Data Management Program can help with assistance on publishing data through the Dryad, ICPSR and other subject repositories. They can also further assist you with creating identifiers, using EZID, for anything: texts, data, bones, terms, etc., and managing your research objects more easily with shareable, unbreakable links. To get started with assistance on any of this, please email our network of librarians and consultants at
