Figshare Partners with the American Chemical Society Publications Division
Figshare’s content enhancing and discovery services, the Figshare viewer and portal, will enhance the experience ACS offers their authors and readers by providing access to research data alongside articles.
Jonathan Morgan, director of Digital Strategy for ACS Publications says:
“The feedback we’re hearing from authors and readers reinforces the value and the importance of the data and other supporting information published in ACS journals. Authors need to ensure the visibility and the openness of the data that support their original research. In parallel, our global audience of readers has voiced a need for improved and streamlined access to information that underlies the important scientific advances published by our Society. This new strategic partnership with Figshare seeks to satisfy such author and reader needs.”
Figshare availability will be rolled out in the coming months across the ACS Publications portfolio of journals. Researchers can access the ACS Publications/ Figshare portal at http://acs.figshare.com.
