Figshare: research data management tool

May 18, 2020
Posted In: AT Still Library News, AT Still Memorial Library

Figshare is an online platform for academic research data management and research data dissemination. It accepts all file types, and files are viewable through a browser. Figshare enables you to upload, share, cite, and discover all manner of research outputs. The data stays secure with their various hosting options and long-term preservation. Figshare seamlessly integrates with other tools such as Github, so Figshare can be used to make the data persistent. You own your data and you control how it is shared.

Figshare is a great place to promote your research and raise your profile as a researcher. Your research is discoverable with use of relevant tags, to assist people in finding your research. Rich metadata such as a descriptive title or appropriate key words leads more people to finding your research. By hosting on Figshare, you can easily share your research on social media, and track the Altmetric stats. Figshare deposits are indexed by Google Scholar, and datasets are included in the Google Dataset search results.

If you need assistance getting started or following best practices, contact the library or visit our data services guide, which provides resources and helpful information on all aspects of the data life cycle.

For assistance finding data to re-use, contact Adrienne Brodie, MLS, liaison librarian for ATSU-ASHS & ATSU-SOMA, for help locating a repository and relevant data sets. You may also request assistance with selecting the proper repository to submit your own data for preservation and reuse.
