Note that UVA policies require retention of research records even if data is shared in a repository. Follow guidelines at RES-002: Ownership, Retention, Safeguarding, Management, and Transfer of Research Records and on the Research Records site.
NIH strongly encourages the use of established repositories to the extent possible for preserving and sharing scientific data. Follow the steps below to choose repository for your plan.
LibraData, UVA’s institutional data repository, is a great option for non-sensitive data. Below are some of its benefits:
Planning to use LibraData?
You can use the below language to describe LibraData in your DMS plan:
"The sharable data and research materials will be deposited in the University of Virginia’s institutional repository LibraData, UVA’s local instance of Dataverse repository. LibraData assigns DOIs to each dataset which makes data searchable and discoverable by Datacite and other data search engines. The necessary metadata, documentation, code and other resources to make my data accessible and re-usable for future users will also be submitted. By depositing data and research materials in UVA’s Dataverse, the sharable research from this project will be discoverable and citable by others who wish to use it. The current preservation plan for Libra will be to preserve the data indefinitely. The Libra backup plan provides for data redundancy including off-site storage."
Generalist repositories, like Figshare and Zenodo, accept many different kinds of data. Many offer free deposits and some also provide options for controlled access.
In your plan's Element 4, you'll need to describe the repository's discovery, preservation, and access characteristics. You'll find that information on the repository's website - try searching for DOI or preservation on the site, or ask your librarian for help.
Example text: The data and associated metadata will be deposited in Figshare, which provides a DOI at the time of publication. All public research data on deposited in Figshare is stored is preserved in Chronopolis and is guaranteed long-term access. Data will be shared by the time of publication of the first peer-reviewed article.
