For researchers, there are a number of ways for sharing datasets beyond their own research teams.
- Depositing data in a disciplinary repository.
- Publishing in a data journal.
- Submitting data with a journal article as a supplemental file.
- Using a personal or research group website, wiki, blog, or other web-based tool (note that these tools may be effective in the short term but should not be viewed as solutions for long-term sharing and preservation).
