I had obtained some results based on sensor data obtained from experiments that I had conducted.

In the interest of allowing others to reproduce or improve on my work, is there a way to make this data available online in a way that is free and publicly-accessible?

  • there are lots of places to host (Github being the most common, and not requiring registration for a public dataset), but make sure to link to it! – philshem Sep 11 at 8:53
  • @philshem Would it be possible for this duplicate to remain in existence? With the the wording I used to ask the question, I never would've found the other question asked on this SE (this one: opendata.stackexchange.com/questions/768/…). – plu Sep 11 at 18:39
  • sure, especially since it has 2 answers – philshem Sep 12 at 7:51

From here, it shows the following table of data repositories.

Options for sharing data

Open Science Framework, Zenodo, and Mendeley Data are the most viable options for free data sharing. With the other options either not being completely free nor accessible to everyone.


I think https://www.kaggle.com may be a good place. I´ve never used it myself (to publish but i´ve used many datasets), but a lot of people in academy or data scientist refer to kaggle when looking for datasets.

  • I tried testing it and found that there was a disadvantage of requiring a sign-in to access any of the data, so its not as accessible as an alternative like Zenodo. – plu Sep 10 at 1:08
  • You are right !... I´m going to check Zenodo ;) – Rodrigo Zuñiga Sep 13 at 12:57
