Texas State University Dataverse Repository

The Texas State University Dataverse Repository is hosted on the Dataverse platform, developed and used by Harvard University. It offers researchers a trusted repository to deposit, share, manage, and publish their research datasets. Researchers can also find and cite data across all research fields. The Texas State University Dataverse Repository is an open access data repository supported and hosted by the Texas Digital Library.

  • Ensure long-term data use: Researchers control levels of access, track data versions, and use numerous tools working with data 
  • Meeting funder and publishers requirements: Each dataset is minted a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) 
  • Receive credit for your work: The Texas State University Dataverse Repository is free to use for TXST researchers and open-access data is made available to everyone worldwide
