Store, share, manage & 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.


Springer Nature is a global publisher dedicated to providing the best possible service to the whole research community. It helps authors to share their discoveries; enable researchers to find, access and understand the work of others; and supports librarians and institutions with innovations in technology and data.

To help authors and journals follow good practice in sharing and archiving research data, Springer Nature provides optional data deposition and curation services – enabling greater data sharing, compliance with funder policies and enhancing peer-reviewed publications.

Springer Nature also provides a free-to-use Research Data Support Helpdesk, which anyone can contact to get advice on research data – including, which repository is best for your data, how to write a data availability statement, help on licences for sharing data, advice on implementing a data policy, and much more.
