IEEE developed IEEE DataPort to provide significant benefits to researchers, data analysts, and the global technical community. The platform offers free uploads of any dataset up to 2TB for those that need to retain and manage their valuable research data and it offers free access to the datasets on IEEE DataPort. The platform currently has over 670,000 global users and over 1,500 datasets and continues to provide value to researchers around the globe.  

IEEE DataPort benefits include:

  • Backed by IEEE—reputable and trusted

  • Can store datasets indefinitely up to 2TB each

  • Support Open Data Initiatives and Reproducible Research

  • Standard Datasets (non-Open Access Datasets) can always be uploaded at no cost

  • Open Access Dataset uploads are currently free using promo code OPENACCESS1

  • Datasets can be linked to Xplore articles (over 105 IEEE journals/magazines now integrated with IEEE DataPort)

  • Users can send email to dataset owners, make inquiries, collaborate, or provide direct feedback on a specific dataset
