The Marine and Coastal Hub uses a federated network of data providers to deliver its research data outputs. Hub data may be published through the University of Tasmania's Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) data repository, the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) eAtlas data repository, or a number of other Hub partner or discipline-specific repositories that meet the Hub's requirements for discovery and enduring access.

IMAS and eAtlas provide dedicated tools and workflows to support publication of Hub data. All Marine and Coastal Hub data is aggregated by the Australian Ocean Data Network (AODN). Through the AODN, the Hub data collection can be discovered and accessed in a central location.

All Hub projects follow FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) open data principles, with all data made available under licences that allow reuse. When working with Indigenous data, the Global Indigenous Data Alliance’s CARE principles for collective benefit, authority to control, responsibility and ethics, are complementarily applied.

The Marine and Coastal Hub, through its origins in the previous National Environmental Science Program Marine Biodiversity and Tropical Water Quality hubs, brings a broad and knowledgeable data management team to establish and build on existing principles, strategies, guidelines and infrastructure for both the hub and as a key participant in the broader marine science community.

The Hub Data Management Guide for Researchers provides a comprehensive and practical set of recommendations aimed at hub researchers and their collaborators. It is aimed to clarify expectations and support good data publishing practices for enhanced reusability. All project leaders are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the contents of this guide.
