DR-NTU (Data) is the institutional open access research data repository for Nanyang Technological University (NTU) researchers to deposit, publish and archive final research data, to make their data discoverable, accessible and reusable. 

DR-NTU (Data) is built on an open-source web application called Dataverse, and is developed and used by Harvard University to share, preserve, cite, explore, and analyze research data. DR-NTU (Data) is supported by the Library and CITS.


DR-NTU (Data) curates, stores, preserves, makes available and enables the download of digital data generated by the NTU research community in various disciplines. The repository develops and provides guidance for managing, sharing, and reusing research data to promote responsible data sharing in support of open science and research integrity.

Trusted Repository

DR-NTU (Data) is certified as a Trustworthy Data Repository by the CoreTrustSeal Standards and Certification Board. Certification is valid until 28 Jan 2025.

Why certification?

Certification can be an important contribution to ensure the reliability and durability of data repositories and hence the potential for sharing data over a long period of time. As a CoreTrustSeal Certified Repository, DR-NTU (Data) demonstrates that an independent authority has evaluated and endorsed its trustworthiness.
