When Dr. Mark Hahnel set up Figshare, he was only looking to store his data and get extra credit for his research. Today, academics the world over use the platform to store and share their data, or to get recognition for their path breaking work. Figshare’s integration with other data hosting platforms such as Google Scholar, Altmetric, Orcid, and GitHub helps academics manage their data on the cloud safely, access their files anywhere and anytime using desktop uploaders, create collaborative spaces, and privately share their data with selected people. By not interfering with researchers’ workflow and busy schedules, Figshare helps researchers’ develop best data management practices.
