I am about to publish my article, where can I deposit my data?

Some research funders such as the EPSRC require you to make openly available (where appropriate) datasets supporting your pending publications.
UCL Discovery is a repository that can be used to make publicly accessible such small datasets underpinning your publications. It is free of charge for UCL researchers.
You will be able to upload your datasets via the Research Publications Services (RPS). Login in RPS and press the + option next to “datasets”; you can then create a manual record and upload the datasets with that. Guidance for depositing via RPS is available. If you have any problem, contact the Discovery team.
For support and advice about storage & long-term preservation of other types of data, please see our dedicated how-to guide.
