About Research Data Portal

The FIU Research Data Portal serves as an inter-disciplinary data archive to support access and reuse of research data produced at FIU.

Funded by a student technology fee grant, the Research Data Portal is built on the Harvard Dataverse open source web application to help faculty and students share, preserve, cite, explore and analyze research data. For more detailed information about Dataverse, visit the User Guide.

Members across departments and disciplines at FIU, including Biological Sciences, History, Digital Humanities, Computer Science, Engineering and Health Sciences all utilize the data repository to share and preserve their data.

The mission of the Research Data Portal is to:

  1. Provide an online centralized digital repository collection for enhanced discovery of institutional and unique research data across disciplines;
  2. Archive at risk data essential to our student and faculty research in environmental sciences, Everglades research and climate change ensuring long term access;
  3. Provide faculty and students data archiving services that enable PIs, researchers, and students the ability to appropriately manage, share, and preserve their research data in line with funder and publisher requirements.
