ORA-Data is the University of Oxford's digital catalogue and repository for research data, managed by the Bodleian Libraries. It offers a service to archive, preserve and enable the discovery and sharing of data produced by Oxford researchers.
Any type of digital research data – from across all academic disciplines – may be deposited in ORA-Data. We accept any file format.
ORA-Data is aimed at researchers who:
wish to include an entry for their dataset in the University's catalogue of research data, irrespective of where the data is archived need a repository to deposit research data – especially data that underpins publications, and data where the funding body requires archiving and preservation.
ORA-Data sits within the original Oxford Research Archive (ORA) for publications, so that data can be linked easily to – and browsed alongside – related publications.
The repository is very new. Until now there are only a few research data.
The pilot ORA-Data service is currently being offered free of charge until 30 June 2015, while assistants continue to improve the service.
