Datasets and Data Access Statements

Research data produced at the University of Northampton should be deposited in PURE unless circumstances determine that a more appropriate repository is chosen, these include:

  • The funder of the research mandate a specific data repository
  • In joint research projects the data is deposited in the repository of a collaborator
  • A specialist or disciplinary focused repository exists that provides data with greater impact
  • Certain types of data, typically software or code, are better served in a version control repository such as GitHub.

The only local requirement for external deposit is that a corresponding dataset record must be created in Pure which references and links to the external repository.

If you are uncertain where to deposit your dataset/s please contact the Research Support Team at with the subject Datasets.
