The Australian Data Archive (ADA) provides a national service for the collection and preservation of digital research data. ADA disseminates this data for secondary analysis by academic researchers and other users.

Deposit Process Overview

If you are interested in depositing data with the Australian Data Archive, please write an email to outlining the topic of your research and the nature of the data, e.g. sensitivity, type, quantity. The ADA will assess each deposit request against a set of criteria, see Deposit Appraisal & Collection Policy. Once the data has been accepted, the ADA will create a deposit shell on a secure system for the depositor to upload the data, the documentation files and enter metadata (see Quick Deposit Guide for instructions on what to upload). As part of the curation process, the ADA will view the deposit and make suggestions for changes if necessary (see Workflows for details). When the curation is complete, the depositor has the opportunity to preview the final version of the deposit on a designated review page. Once the depositor is happy with it, the deposit is published on the ADA dataverse and will receive a permanent DOI.
