Research Data Management

Sharing/Publishing Data

The UO Libraries supports an institutional repository, Scholars' Bank, which can be used for publishing your data. In addition, by depositing in this repository, your data will be preserved according to the digital preservation standards enacted by the Libraries for all digital collections. Scholars' Bank will allow multiple types of files to be uploaded, but they will have to be downloaded for re-use.

You can get cited for your data by publishing your data via Scholars' Bank at the UO.


  1. Deposit your data in Scholars' Bank
  2. Scholars' Bank registers your data set with the DOI system via DataCite
  3. Your data can be cited with the DOI in the same way as a published article

If you plan on preserving multiple versions of your data, please make sure to coordinate with the Scholars' Bank administrators prior to deposit. Scholars' Bank was originally designed for research papers and PDF files. If you have a data set over 50 MB, please contact the Scholars' Bank administrators to make sure the files can be downloaded efficiently and there is room on the servers. The Scholars' Bank administrators can help with descriptive metadata to make it easier for others to find your data sets. They can also help with wording to put in your data management plan specifying software versions and back-up procedures.

Theses and Dissertation Data

Data for theses and dissertations can be embargoed for up to 2 years, giving you time to finish related publication(s) before the data is publicly available.

If you plan to deposit theses or dissertation data into Scholars' Bank: Data, please contact
