Store, Share, Manage and Discover Research

figshare is a repository where users can make all of their research outputs available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner. Data can be shared privately with collaborators or made public in the name of open research or to comply with funder and publisher mandates. All research outputs made public receive a DOI making them citable with the most liberal Creative Commons license where possible.

Researchers create a vast amount of data in various formats but are forced to share their results through pdfs, static documents with limited functionality. They also deserve to get credit for the bulk of their work that currently goes unpublished.
