You can deposit data but apply an embargo on the whole record or individual items. This allows the data to be deposited and a link created for inclusion in scholarly outputs but to delay the access to the data. This is particularly useful if you’re planning to publish from the same dataset again.

There are two options when applying an embargo:

  • File level - the metadata record will be publicly visible but the data behind the record will be embargoed
  • Whole item - the metadata record and data will be not be visible until the embargo has expired (this limits the discoverability of the data record)
