"Data is anything digital that is not a peer reviewed published article"
“Data is anything digital that is not a peer reviewed published article,” says Dr. Mark Hahnel, founder of Figshare, as he talks about how Figshare is used by close to 2 million researchers across disciplines for managing different types of data including grant proposals. The easy-to-use data management platform is also gaining popularity in Asia, where researchers want to get as much credit for their research as possible in order to stay ahead of the competition. Figshare is also used by other stakeholders such as scientific journalists, funders, citizen scientists, pharma companies, and commercial organizations. This versatility makes Figshare a platform that can revolutionize data management in research by incentivizing it for scientists.
