Manage your research data with IEEE DataPort

Data sharing strengthens our collective capability to meet scientific standards of openness by providing opportunities for further analysis, replication, verification, and refinement of research findings.

Research data sharing is critical to scientific innovation and reproducible research. IEEE is committed to supporting the data sharing needs of the research community. IEEE developed IEEE DataPort as a solution for researchers, by enabling all research disciplines to store, share, access, and manage research data. Visit IEEE DataPort.

Features and Benefits

  • Users can link their Dataset to their Published Paper in IEEE Xplore: IEEE DataPort is integrated with IEEE Xplore, and datasets can be linked and made available with a user’s IEEE Xplore published paper. 
  • Increase Citations: Research data in IEEE DataPort can lead to more citations. Data is citable and IEEE DataPort makes giving and receiving citations simple.
  • 2TB Data Storage: Store datasets up to 2TB each for free. Instructions on the easy upload process can be found here:

                     Instructions for Standard Datasets (accessible to IEEE DataPort subscribers)

                     Instructions for Open Access Datasets (accessible to all users)

                     Instructions for Initiating a Data Competition

  • Supports Open Data: IEEE DataPort provides users with the opportunity to upload Open Access data which is useful if funding requirements mandate Open Access.  It’s currently free to upload Open Access data (use promo code OPENACCESS1).
  • DOI: All datasets are assigned a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) for use in articles and conference proceedings. Users can strengthen content by referencing their dataset with the IEEE DataPort DOI.
