Select a Repository

Data are deposited in a repository towards the end of its lifecycle, when it is ready for sharing and publication. UVic Libraries can guide researchers in selecting an appropriate repository to suit their needs.

UVic Repositories

UVic has two main multidisciplinary repositories for scholarly research outputs:

  • UVic Dataverse is our multi-disciplinary repository supporting the storage, licensing and sharing of research data files.
  • UVic Space is our institutional open-access repository for digital scholarly works.

National Repository

Domain Repositories

Domain (or disciplinary) repositories are developed and managed by research communities, often with features to support the needs of specific data types.

  • is a directory of external, domain-based repositories to help researchers find a repository that meet any discipline-specific needs.

For assistance selecting a digital research repository, contact Monique Grenier.
