Depositing your data in a repository or archive can help you:
Cite the data to give credit to the data producer, enable others to use the data, and meet journal requirements.
Familiarise yourself with the data sharing and accessibility requirements of a journal before you submit your research to be published. Follow good research data management practices throughout your project to ensure your data can be accessed and understood when 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.

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.
