Data repositories at the University

Research Data Leeds

The Research Data Leeds repository is the institutional research data repository for the University of Leeds. The service aims to facilitate data discovery and data sharing.

You should use this service if your research is funded by any of the UK Research Councils, Wellcome Trust, CRUK or Horizon 2020, and they have not specified another repository.

Research Data Leeds will help to make your research data is findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable under the FAIR principles.

Restricted Access Data Repository (RADAR)

The Restricted Access Data Repository (RADAR) is a companion service to the Research Data Leeds repository. You can use RADAR to provide controlled access to data that cannot be made fully open, for example human-derived data or commercially sensitive data.

To share these types of data openly, it is important to have appropriate agreements with commercial partners, or explicit consent from your research participants.

The repositories can be used together, using Research Data Leeds to share some research outputs openly, with other outputs restricted in RADAR. A Data Management Plan (DMP) will help you to plan and identify any potential issues during data collection and help you to share it safely at the end of your project.

Please get in touch to find out more about RADAR and how to use it for your project.
