What are Data Repositories
When researchers compile data for a project they often deposit their data in a repository to share their work to fellow researchers.
There are thousands of data repositories available, and many of them are subject specific. This guide lists a few major repositories.
Major Data Repositories
Global Health Observatory data repository
More than 1000 health indicators from the World Health Organization.
Dryad is a curated general-purpose repository that makes the data underlying scientific publications discoverable, freely reusable, and citable. Dryad has integrated data submission for a growing list of journals; submission of data from other publications is also welcome.
Google Dataset Search
This search engine allows you to search across thousands of data repositories online. Search results are connected to Google Scholar and highlight whenever a dataset is used in scholarship. Currently a Beta version.
