Deposit your data in a repository or archive to ensure that it can be accessed, cited and reused. Journal publishers such as Nature Publishing Group and the Public Library of Science (PLOS) increasingly require that the data underpinning the research they publish is shared or deposited in an accessible database or repository. Your journal publisher or funder may prefer you to use a certain repository; your supervisor or School may also have recommendations.
Ensure you’re familiar with the data sharing and accessibility requirements of a journal before you submit your research to be published, and follow good research data management practices throughout your project to ensure your data can be shared and published.
Data journals are publications whose primary purpose is to expose datasets. Publishing in a data journal may be of interest to researchers and data producers for whom data is a primary research output.
The Researcher development website has a list of potential tools for collaborative writing and sharing. Please note: the list is not an endorsement of any particular service or tool.

Massey University supports the ZendTo service as a means of transferring large files (up to 20GB) in and out of Massey via email. ZendTo is a transfer service only; files are automatically deleted two weeks after upload.
Data visualisation tools allow users to communicate their research results, and to visually represent data in new ways that allow for enhanced understanding and discovery.
Ensure your published data can always be located and attributed to you through DOIs and ORCID IDs.
ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier (ORCID ID) that’s unique to you; if you use an ORCID ID all the data that you’ve published can be easily identified as yours.
You can apply a DOI so that your data will always have a persistent, citable link to the original source, and the impact of your data can be measured effectively.
Apply a DOI to your data when it:
Massey University does not currently subscribe to a DOI minting service. If you think this might be of use to you or your department, please contact the Research Data Management Librarian.
