Using figshare's API to customise your data repository: A case study from the University of Sheffield

figshare's open API allows users to develop features and systems on top of our out-of-the-box research data management solution. Jez Cope and Marcelo Paulino of the University of Sheffield have built a fully-customised, branded portal on top of their existing figshare portal which highlights recently-uploaded items and links to internal documentation for support.

In this webinar, Jez and Marcelo explored the rationale for building this portal, how they did it, and where it’s going next. They also shared tips on how to do something similar at your own institution or organisation.
