Data Repositories and Archives

Murdoch University's Research Repository

Murdoch University is able to archive your research data via the Library's Research Repository once your project is complete. 

The Library can also add your metadata to the Research Repository if you have archived your research data elsewhere in a domain-specific repository.

Please refer to the Research Data Management Plan (RDMP) form, as you will need to provide a copy of the form when contacting the Library.

Repository Certification

CoreTrustSeal is a certification organisation that offers data repositories a core level certification based on the DSA-WDS Core Trustworthy Data Repositories Requirements catalogue and procedures. This universal catalogue of requirements reflects the core characteristics of trustworthy data repositories.

Repositories that meet the certification standards display this seal:
