figshare
figshare is a data publishing platform that is free for all researchers. Some of figshare’s core beliefs are: academic research outputs should be as open as possible, as closed as necessary; academic research outputs should never be behind a paywall; academic research outputs should be human and machine readable/query-able; academic infrastructure should be interchangeable; academic researchers should never have to put the same information into multiple systems at the same institution; identifiers for everything; and the impact of research is independent of where it is published and what type of output it is. figshare supports embargoing and managed access, and will embargo data while undergoing peer review. Metadata in figshare is licenced under is CC0. All files and metadata can be accessed from docs.figshare.com. figshare has also partnered with DuraSpace and Chronopolis to offer further assurances that public data will be archived under the stewardship of Chronopolis. In the highly unlikely event of multiple AWS S3 failures, figshare can restore public user content from Chronopolis. figshare is supported through Institutional, Funder, and Governmental service subscriptions.
