Scientific Data works with over 60 public data repositories and helps
authors find the best place to store their data (see our list here). We
require authors to store their data in community-recognized
data-type-specific repositories when they exist. *But for many data-types,
specific repositories do not exist. In these cases, broad repositories,
such as figshare, that can host a wide range of data-types provide a
crucial service to the scientific community.*
