Virginia Tech’s new data repository helps researchers share data
Researchers in need of space to store, preserve, and share data have a new option available: VTechData, Virginia Tech’s new data repository.
At some point in their careers, researchers need a place to securely store their data, whether they have to comply with funding requirements or want a sustainable place to share their data in the future. VTechData addresses these needs by providing faculty, staff, and students with a platform for openly publishing data.
Virginia Tech researchers gathered data on rural water supply methods in Nampula, Mozambique, to improve sustainable access to clean water. That data, along with other Virginia Tech research, will be available to the public in Virginia Tech’s new open data repository.
