The GSL–Figshare partnership provides for an improved discoverability and archiving service for author data sets and other supporting material for articles published in the Society’s journal and book publications.  The interactive software powered by Figshare enables readers to view author supplementary material, which GSL will deposit on behalf of their authors. The data can be displayed in more than 600 formats, including video and multimedia files, tabular data and geosite data. Access to supporting data within any GSL publication is now freely available to all users via the Society’s Figshare portal at geolsoc.figshare.com.
