NLM Strategic Plan
NLM's vision is to "refocus and enhance its research development, training, and information services to make more biomedical data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable, to invent the tools and services to turn data and information into knowledge and insight, and to develop the workforce capable of doing so."

Data Discovery Resources
Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell Data Catalog
A website tool to facilitate researchers’ discovery of data by providing a searchable and browsable online collection of records describing datasets generated by ZSOM, Northwell Health, and Feinstein Institute researchers.
A prototype biomedical data search engine that will allow users to discover data sets across data repositories or data aggregators.
A global registry of research data repositories that cover a wide range of academic disciplines.re3data presents repositories for the permanent storage and access of data sets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions.
A community driven project providing access to data across multiple member repositories, supporting enhanced search and discovery of Earth and environmental data
Our World in Data
Our World in Data (OWID) is an open access scientific online publication that focuses on large global problems such as poverty, disease, hunger, climate change, war, existential risks, and inequality.
A repository of data underlying scientific and medical publications.
A repository of standards, databases, and policies for the life and biomedical sciences.
Figshare enables academics to upload, share, cite and importantly discover all manner of research outputs with the security of knowing our hosting options and platform support long term preservation of data.
Gene Expression Omnibus
GEO is a public functional genomics data repository supporting MIAME-compliant data submissions.
A data archive of more than 250,000 files of research in the social and behavioral sciences.
An open research data repository, where researchers can upload and share their research data. Datasets can be shared privately amongst individuals, as well as published to share with the world.
National Institute of Mental Health Data Archive (NDA)
The National Institute of Mental Health Data Archive (NDA) makes available human subjects data collected from hundreds of research projects across many scientific domains.
NIH Data Sharing Repositories
A list of NIH-supported data repositories that make data accessible for reuse.
Repository for methods and protocols in the life sciences
An all-purpose open-access repository developed under the European OpenAIRE program and operated by CERN.
The following are characteristics identified by the BMIC as being desirable characteristics of data repositories:
- Persistent unique identifiers
- Long-term sustainability
- Curation & quality assurance
- Maximally open access
- Tracking data re-use
- Free of charge
- Common format
Additional considerations for repositories involving human data:
- Fidelity to consent
- Restricted use compliant
- Plan for breach
- Download audit and control
- Clear use guidance
- Retention guidance
- Plan for use violations
- Request review
