Data Collections

Currently, there is no one-stop shop for scientific data. Instead, finding data is a two step process:

  1. Find out which collection or repository has the kind of data you seek
    • Published articles may include information about where the data was deposited
    • Directories of repositories (below) can point to repositories where data on a topic can be found
  2. Look in those collections for the data itself.

Here are some directories of repositories.
