Figshare Sponsor Message

Pro Vice Chancellor - Research Operations

Everyone should be applying best practice when it comes to managing data and digital research outputs. These assets are at sigifcant cost in time and money and it could be a serious problem if funders, publishers or potential collaborators were to ask you to produce them and you were unable to.

Scenarios like this are why the University has invested in figshare, the data management and publishing tool.

Figshare makes it easy to store, share, discover and get credit for your research.

Not only will figshare help you manage your data, it will also help all of us to comply with the requirements of:

  • Funders
  • Publishers
  • The UofA Research Data and Primary materials policy
  • The Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research

This is why the University is encouraging all researchers - Academic Staff, Titleholders/Affiliates and HDR Students - to explore Figshare with a view to publishing your data.

Regards,
Mike
