Engineering dataset

I am interested in preserving a data sets in structural engineering. The current repositories do not seem to fit the goal of this data set (floor vibrations). Do you know of an appropriate repository for this type of data? or can my lab become a node of DataOne? does not fit the goal of this data set either because it is not related to earthquake engineering.

Currently, there are no engineering-specific repositories registered to DataONE.

It seems like you already found the list of current Member Nodes / repositories on the DataONE website. If you haven't already visited the contribute data page, it explains a bit about finding the appropriate Member Node (repository). I think for your engineering data the Data-Up / ONEShare node is the one option that might work for your data if you want to use an existing repository. Information about that node and how to contact the administrators can be found on their summary sheet. DataUp also has their own home page here.

Regarding setting up your own Member Node, it does require a longer-term commitment of resources to keep the server maintained and online, but if you are interested, please see the Member Node section of the DataONE site.

ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS: DataONE is looking to expand it's range of domains, so if you think hosting a repository is possible, or can suggest a repository (such as that you think would be a good addition to DataONE, please contact DataONE at

In addition to ONEShare, you could contribute your data set to the KNB repository, which is open to submissions.

You can also search Databib ( and Browse by Subjects ( to see if any of the repositories listed there meet your needs.
