Guide for preparing social science data for sharing. 




Sharing Data and Materials


Why share your data? 

  • Meet requirements of federal grants
  • Meet requirements of academic journals
  • Increase the transparency of your research
We can help you prepare your data for sharing and find the right outlet for your work. We can also help connect you with resources in the University Libraries for more information on metadata, copyright, and intellectual property issues associated with data and research materials.
