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

How to use projects and collaborate on Figshare

Figshare is a powerful, flexible and easy to use platform for storing, managing and publishing files and related resources, and linking them to the published outputs of your research projects. It can also be used to share initial data and findings, that reflect your research. Sharing data on Figshare helps make it for Findable and Accessible.

The Projects tab is your pathway to collaboration; here you create new projects, access those you collaborate on and check out those you have view permissions for. Members of each project can upload files or add text notes, as well as comments. An activity stream keeps track of all actions on each users account. In addition to private projects, you can now make a project public

Individual Projects

  • Everyone uses their own quota and account storage.
  • People take their work with them if they leave the project.

Group Projects

  • Submitters’ quota will not be used, storage allocation comes directly from the project.
  • All work is stored on institutional storage and remains within the project space if people leave.
