[Storing data]

Open archives


In terms of data, "open archives" refers to research data archives which provide data for commercial or noncommercial use and reuse without any restrictions. At present, various repositories exist for this purpose, and researchers must decide where to place their data for long-term storage, if required for a grant or journal publication, and be aware that repositories for this purpose may change through time and institutional, national, and international standards evolve.
