More and more funders are requiring the management and sharing of digital materials produced as part of a grant. In many cases the researcher will have the choice as to where to place the outputs of their research. When an appropriate domain repository is unavailable, the Data Repository at WU is the recommended general repository. 

  • Your primary research materials will be archived and accessible for future researchers to reuse, which increases your research impact. 
  • You will be safeguarding your research time and investment with a trusted, long standing source, the University.
  • If your grant funder or publisher includes data sharing and archiving requirements, curating your data with the WU Libraries will fulfill this requirement.
  • Curating your research materials with the library involves enriching your data beyond the standard storage and backup techniques. 
  • Improve the discoverability and cite-ability of your research materials, through the assignment of a DOI and the dissemination of your research to international linked data platforms.
