Join a growing community of Harvard and worldwide researchers who share data in the Harvard Dataverse Repository

Publishing your data and code in the Harvard Dataverse Repository:

  • Increases the visibility of your research

  • Gets you credit for your data through citations

  • Satisfies data sharing requirements from funders and journals


The Harvard Dataverse Repository is a free data repository open to all researchers from any discipline, both inside and outside of the Harvard community, where you can share, archive, cite, access, and explore research data. Each individual Dataverse collection is a customizable collection of datasets (or a virtual repository) for organizing, managing, and showcasing datasets.

You can open your data to the general public, or restrict access and define customizable terms of use. When you publish your data, you automatically get a standard data citation with a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), and your metadata is open and findable via search engines, even when the data are restricted.
