Many scholar's websites, journal websites, and scholarly association websites also post openly accessible datasets. If you're looking for these, think of scholars, journals, or associations that publish on the topic you're interested in, and then look to see if they have posted datasets related to their publications. Talk to a librarian for help!
Many more journals require that data associated with articles be shared in trusted repositories. To find data associated with an article, open up an article and look near the end or beginning for a statement on data availability.
Usually you'll identify scholars by looking for publications on your topic. Then look to see if they host their data on their websites. Search for the researcher's name and then put site:.edu at the end of your Google search. Look for areas of their page called "data," "datasets," or "replication data."
