How much does it cost to deposit data?

There are multiple free options to deposit data at ICPSR, including (1) the General Archive where data are curated and available at no cost to those at member institutions, (2) openICPSR where self-published, uncurated data are available at no cost to all users, and (3) one of the sponsored topical archives provided the data meet any applicable selection criteria.

If you are looking for your data to be part of the General Archive and available to all users at no cost, it is possible to pay for ICPSR’s curation services (e.g., through a grant). If you are interested in pursuing this option, please contact for a curation cost estimate.
