The SciLifeLab Data Repository, powered by Figshare, is a repository for publishing any kind of research-related data, e.g. documents, figures, or presentations. Figshare is an open data repository used by researchers in numerous disciplines. Through an agreement with Figshare, SciLifeLab offers researchers and facilities the opportunity to upload and publish their research data through a dedicated portal.
The purpose of the SciLifeLab Data Repository is to serve publishing of data. The Repository is not meant for restricted data sharing between project partners only or as temporary storage, and all data uploaded is expected to become public at some point. However, data that requires controlled access can also be handled, by submitting a meta data record without the actual raw data itself.
Individual users automatically receive 50 GB of storage space which can be increased by request. When uploaded data is published, a permanent DOI link is created which can be used for citations.

Who can get help? If you are a researcher at a Swedish academic institution working in SciLifeLab’s areas of activity, you can get help from SciLifeLab Data Management support team.
You must add licenses for how the published material can be reused. Files which have been uploaded and published cannot be altered, although the entry’s metadata can be edited after publishing, see Edit Files. The platform supports versioning of datasets in case the files need to be updated. Sensitive personal data cannot be deposited in the SciLifeLab Data Repository, but metadata descriptions of such datasets can be submitted, see information on Publishing human data. It is not allowed to upload illegal material, claim authorship of the work of others, or in other ways misuse the service in such ways that violates laws or research ethics.
