    Research Data Management Strategy

Data Deposits

  • Data Deposits refers to the place where researchers deposit their data into a recognized data repository, including all digital research data, metadata and code that directly support research conclusions in journal publications and pre-prints that arise from agency-supported research. Researchers should consider the following points (Refer to Appendix B in Lambton College’s RDM Strategy for more questions to consider):

    • What counts as relevant research data and which data should be preserved. This is often highly contextual and should be guided by disciplinary norms and grant recipients own judgement,
    • Appropriate access to the data where ethical, cultural, legal, and commercial requirements allow, and in accordance with the FAIR principles and the standards of the discipline.
    • Is there a domain-specific repository supported by your discipline. If so, this may be the best place to deposit your data.
    • If no domain-specific repository exists, consider one of two-multi-disciplinary repository options.

    At Lambton College the repository will be the Microsoft Teams server that is run through the IT department. This repository is secure, user specific and has the capacity to store all Research Data gathered as a department.

    Data Deposit Request

    Non-Lambton College Repositories

    Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR)

    FRDR leverages Canada’s national Digital Research Infrastructure, through a partnership between CARL Portage and Compute Canada, to offer robust, cost effective repository storage at scale.

    Dataverse North

    Dataverse North is a community of practice that brings together providers and users of Dataverse in Canada. Dataverse is an open source data repository platform for publishing research data, developed and maintained by Harvard University and contributors from around the world.


    Borealis, the Canadian Dataverse Repository, is a bilingual, multi-disciplinary, secure, Canadian research data repository, supported by academic libraries and research institutions across Canada. Borealis supports open discovery, management, sharing, and preservation of Canadian research data.
