Deposit your research data to ICPSR

Preserving and disseminating research data is important to the future of scholarship. ICPSR encourages researchers to deposit their digital data and offers curation and preservation services that increase research impact and help meet funder data sharing requirements.

There are multiple free options to deposit data at ICPSR. Depending on the nature of the data, ICPSR can make it freely available to the public, to ICPSR member institutions, or to researchers who are granted restricted-access use through either secure download, or virtual or in-person secure data enclaves. See the FAQs for Depositing Data for more details.
