Share and publish research data


There are many repositories and services where researchers can publish or share research data, both general and subject specific repositories.

Can I always make research data available?

There may be restrictions for research data to be publicly shared, such as commercial, ethical or legal reasons. For more information see the resources listed on the page Legal aspects and funder requirements or contact the university experts on legal or ethical matters.

Even if research data may not be publicly shared, it is possible to publish a description of the research data to make it visible for search. 

Repositories with a general focus

The Swedish National Data Service (SND) is a national consortium for handling research data. Researchers have access to various services for research data, including a catalog for making research data available.

Lund University is a member of the SND consortium.
