Research Data Services

Welcome to the OSU Libraries’ Research Data Services page. Here you will find information and resources to help you manage your data and measure its impact in your field utilizing the latest tools and techniques. In addition, we are happy to work with you and your students in providing workshops and instruction on creating data management plans, developing data literacy skills (how data is created, shared, accessed and re-purposed), as well as accessing tools to manipulate and visualize data. If you have any questions, or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us:

Data Project Management

Scholarly collaboration can be difficult across institutions and teams. The Open Science Framework is an free platform that allows you to keep all your files, data, and protocols in one centralized location. You control which parts of your project are public or private making it easy to collaborate with the worldwide community or just your team, and you can connect your favorite third party services such as Amazon, Dropbox, and GitHub directly to the Open Science Framework.

Data Management Support

Whether you need assistance constructing a data management plan or have questions about collecting and sharing your data, the library is here to help.

Data Storage

The library is partnering with the High Performance Computing Center to find storage solutions for all of your data needs, both big and small.

Metadata & Documentation

Knowing how to describe your data so that it can be found and understood is nothing less than an art form, let us show you how.

Institutional Repository (SHAREOK)

More than just a place to store links to your research, our institutional repository features researcher profiles that highlight your scholarly efforts.

Research Impact

Alternative metrics can help you tell the story of your research and determine its impact in your field.

Data Visualization

Whether you are creating a chart or an image, data visualization tools and processes can help you “see” your data in a different light.
