Which article type?

You can upload all of your research outputs to figshare. When you make your research outputs publicly available, you can choose the type of research that you are sharing. This video demonstrates how simple it is to upload different filetypes. You can read more about the filetypes we visualise below the video.

Figures

Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.

Typical file formats used: JPG, PNG, SVG, TIFF, EPS, PDF, etc.

Datasets

Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.

Typical file formats used: CSV, XLS, XLSX, SAV, etc.

Media

Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.

Typical file formats used: MOV, MP4, AVI, FLV, MP3, etc.

Posters

Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.

Typical file formats used: JPG, PPT, PPTX, PPTM, PDF, etc.

Papers

Papers are generally pre-prints or copies of papers that are being self archived with the goal of green open access. They can also be theses, dissertations, grant applications, or research notes.

Typical file formats used: DOC, DOCX, ODT, RTF, TXT, PDF, etc.

Presentations

Academic presentations can be uploaded in their original slide format. Presentations are usually represented as slide decks. Videos of presentations can be uploaded as media.

Typical file formats used: PPTX, PPTM, PPT, PDF, XPS, etc.

Thesis

In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.

Typical file formats used: DOC, DOCX, ODT, RTF, TXT, PDF, etc.

Code

Code as a research output can either be uploaded directly from your computer or through the code management system GitHub. Versioning of code repositories is supported.

Typical file formats used: ZIP

Typical file formats used: All of the above and more.
