Data Management: Locating Data
Directories of Data Repositories
Although not comprehensive, these directories are a good place to start searching for a data repository.
Open Access Data Journals
Data journals are a means to share datasets and provide detailed information about the methods and instrumentation used to acquire the data.
Data citations are required by funders, allow the impact of data to be tracked, are separate from publication citations and enable credit to be given to author(s)
Two citation templates are commonly accepted:

The NIH is piloting Figshare as a way to make datasets resulting from NIH-funded research more accessible. All NIH-funded researchers can have a place to store and share their research datasets underlying publication figures and tables, as well as data not associated with publications.
