CMU does not have an institutional repository. This guide is aimed for providing open resources and help all CMU data users including Data Management Plan (DMP) users to identify relevant repositories for research data management.
A data repository is a storage space for researchers to deposit data sets associated with their research. A repository can help you:
"Data should be submitted to discipline-specific, community-recognized repositories where possible. Where a suitable discipline-specific resource does not exist, data should be submitted to a generalist repository."1 The following online directories maintain lists of data sources and repositories across a wide range of disciplines.

Check a list of Data Repositories. "Free" repositories are marked asterisk symbol (*) depending on repository size or a variety of conditions and criteria; while repositories with costs are not marked.
