"Archiving and sharing research data"

ReShare is the UK Data Service's online data repository for the archiving and sharing of research data.

ReShare offers access to open and safeguarded data collections for research and learning. Data can be found via Discover, the discovery portal of the UK Data Service.

Researchers can easily deposit collections of data and accompanying documentation, after registering with the UK Data Service. ESRC grant holders deposit their data with ReShare, as a contractual requirement under the ESRC research data policy. When creating a metadata record for a data collection, researchers can retrieve related project information from the RCUK Gateway to Research.

The UK Data Service sustainably manages and archives the data collections and reviews data before their release, to ensure they conform with ethical and legal requirements.
