What is the Archive Data Service?

The Archive Data service provides researchers with a space to manage their raw data and associated datasets, and to meet long-term preservation requirements, including Tri-Council mandates and the Researcher's long-term data management needs. Archiving data is different from Publishing data in a few ways:

  • Archiving┬áData is assumed to be restricted access when Archived, so only the researcher can access it.
  • Archived Data is not assigned additional information like a DOI or data citation, which is achieved by Publishing Data.
  • Archived Data is only searchable and viewable by the researcher and the system administrator to facilitate access to the data.
  • Archived Data can be Published in the future.

Make an appointment to discuss your data archiving requirements with the Robertson Library.
