Open data sharing is gaining increasing attention in many areas of scientific research and is a priority for research funding agencies. Databrary ( is a web-based, digital data library specialized for storing and sharing video files and associated metadata. Vision scientists often present visual displays to observers and frequently collect gaze position, kinematic data, or other physiological recordings in conjunction with participants’ viewing of the displays. In some cases, researchers collect identifiable video recordings of participants’ visual exploration and other behaviors. Databrary is especially well suited for handling use cases involving dynamic displays, video recordings, and other behavioral data streams. Databrary has also developed policies to enable identifiable information to be shared with participants’ permission. This presentation will describe the structure and features of the Databrary library and policies for access and sharing with special focus on the challenges and promises of data sharing in vision science.
