datorium: Sharing Platform for Social Science Data - Deposit and Publish Research Data for Better Visibility

  • 1. GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences


A great number of research articles in scientific publications – particularly in,
but not limited to, the social science disciplines – present and analyze results
based on data collected from empirical research. However, publishing the
research data at the same time requires effort. To name but a few, scientific
publishers do not strictly request the supporting materials, e.g. research data,
to be published together with the articles. Therefore, despite the importance
of publishing the data, many researchers preserve and provide their data in
various and less reliable ways. In this paper, we present datorium, a sharing
platform for social science research data. Researchers can deposit and publish
their data for better visibility, make the data as persistent, unique citable
objects as well as enable reuse of the data.
