What is Open Research Data Online?

Open Research Data Online (ORDO) is The Open University's research data repository. Based upon the Figshare platform, ORDO can be used for the storage of live research data, but is particularly useful for archiving and publishing research data supporting a publication or once a project is completed. Data stored in ORDO will be kept for a minimum of ten years after project completion; published data will be given a DataCite digital object identifier (DOI), providing a permanent, citable web link to help you get recognition for your work.

These pages provide help and support for your use of ORDO; from the preparation of data for deposit, to dissemination and long term curation after data has been made public.

As an introduction, this video demonstrates how simple it is to upload and describe your data.
