Figshare is a repository where users can make all of their research outputs available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner.


AUTHOR: Your name will appear in the author field by default


If you want to add additional co-authors, then type their name(s) in the dialogue box; if they already have a FigShare account their names will appear. Select the relevant author form the list.

Your name will automatically be added to the Author field. You can rearrange the order in which the authors appear and remove yourself as an author if you are uploading on behalf of someone. You can also search by entering the email address or ORCID (if the author has synced their ORCID to their Figshare account) of the author you want to add. To add an author who doesn’t have a Figshare account, select Add author details and enter their name, email address (optional), and ORCID (optional).

You could also search for a name by entering an email address or ORCid number.

To add a co-author who doesn’t have a FigShare account, type in their name, click on Add author details, and a form will appear where you would add more information about the co-author.

Type in their name and email address, and ORCid (if known) and Save details. Before saving, double-check that the email address is correct, as you will not be able to edit the co-author details at a later stage.
