Some funders require their grant holders to deposit their research data into a specific repository (e.g. NERC grant holders must deposit their data into a recognised NERC Data Centre; ESRC grant holders should normally deposit their data with the UK Data Service). Other funders simply ask that your data is deposited with a responsible repository. Check funder requirements

Researchers storing data in discipline-specific or national repositories are encouraged to store a duplicate of their data in e-space to aid discoverability. For help doing this contact Research Support Librarians rsl@mmu.ac.uk .

Researchers who choose not to store a duplicate of their data in Manchester Metropolitan University’s data repository should, as a minimum, provide a full metadata record for their research data, including details of the item’s Digital Object Identifier (DOI) and where the data can be accessed online.
