Some programs, types of data, ICOs, or Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) may require data deposition in particular data repositories, and “primary consideration should be given to data repositories that are discipline or data-type specific to support effective data discovery and reuse.” NIH encourages the use of established repositories. To select a repository relevant to your data consider: 

  • Is there a specific NIH repository named in the FOA? 

For data generated from research for which no data repository is specified by NIH, researchers are encouraged to select a data repository that is appropriate for the data generated from the research project and is in accordance with the NIH Desirable Characteristics for All Data Repositories.
