The UM scholarly repository is traditionally thought of as a place for dissertations, theses, and faculty scholarly output at the University of Miami, but our repository is also a home for research data.

Deposit your data

Through the University of Miami Libraries any faculty, staff or student can deposit data into the scholarly repository.

This is not yet a self-service data repository and you must contact us to make a deposit request. We will do everything possible to help you prepare for and make the deposit.

By following best practices in research data management such as assigning appropriate metadata, choosing file formats suited for long term preservation, and preparing for ownership and privacy issues, the deposit process will be streamlined.

Other alternatives?

While we will be happy to help deposit your data into the UM repository, perhaps a disciplinary repository will be a better home for your data.
