The NIE Data Repository is a secure repository that facilitates depositing and access to final research datasets generated by funded and non-funded research projects conducted at or under the auspices of NIE.
The repository assigns Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) for reliable citing and facilitates cross-linking to associated works.
It also supports indexing of metadata by search engines to increase the discoverability of your research data.
“Research data are defined as the recorded factual material commonly accepted in the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings, but not any of the following: preliminary analyses, drafts of scientific papers, plans for future research, peer reviews, or communications with colleagues.”
Research data include raw data (e.g. audio and video recordings) and analysed data (e.g. coded data, anonymised data).

Some of the reasons for restricting access to your data:
You may choose to restrict access to the entire dataset or selected files.
If your data are only made available upon request, the access criteria have to be included in the metadata description.
There is no limit for the entire dataset.
However, each single file is limited to 3.5GB.
Any file format is accepted. You are encouraged to submit your data in open format (e.g., CSV or XML) so that your data will be more accessible to others.
You may also choose to submit your data in both proprietary and open format. In this case, please include information about the software required to read and process your files.
You may use other Creative Commons licences or draft a custom data usage licence.

You can find the citation for the dataset at the top of the dataset page in a blue box. In addition, there is a Cite Data button that offers the option to download the citation as EndNote XML, RIS Format, or BibTeX Format.
The repository provides download metrics. You may also set up a Guestbook with custom questions to collect data about who is downloading the files from your datasets.
You may create a private URL to allow individuals or publisher to review your unpublished dataset.
If you have already deposited your final research dataset in another data repository, please email the persistent identifier or URL to email@example.com. We will create a record in the NIE Data Repository that links to your research dataset.
