Figshare is a repository that allows users to upload their data and make it shareable, regardless of the format. This includes papers, graphs, charts, illustrations, and many more. Figshare serves as the citing medium. Your shared data can be discovered by others, and vice versa.
Sign up for an account at http://www.figshare.com/. Accounts are tiered: free accounts start with 1GB of space and allow up to 5 collaborators. Membership levels advance in allowable space, capacity, collaborators and price.
Sign up is simple and less in depth than the other tools mentioned in this guide.
Figshare utilizes Amazon AWS as its infrastructure. Backups are both completed by Figshare and Amazon's S3 technology.
You choose if you wish to have your data publicly available. The one exception is if your work is already uploaded into Figshare prior to joining. Don't worry, your identity wasn't stolen! Figshare simply has been stocked with open access data as a way to seed their repository.
Membership includes limited free space (1GB to 20GB) and unlimited shared space.
