Abstract: The Kepler data archive will endeavor to provide access to mission data in convenient formats for astronomical researchers. The Kepler photometer will accumulate single-bandpass counts on 170,000 targets at a cadence of 30 min. Since archive users are expected to typically access data by astronomical source, pixels from each cadence will be sorted into files by target star. Files that contain the raw pixel values, calibrated pixel values, and calibrated flux for each target will be available from the Kepler archive. Ancillary engineering, collateral, and background data will also be available. All Kepler data will be subject to proprietary rights restrictions based on time and target.
