Figshare is a repository where users can make their data, papers, code, media and other research outputs available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner.
Research outputs 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.
“Figshare wants to open up scientific research and data to the world.”WIRED
