Figshare stores any type of file and visualizes hundreds of file formats making it a great data repository, institutional repository or both.
It has never been easier to have your own open access platform.
The Figshare platform is ready to run and constantly maintained, enabling your researchers to store and publish their data with ease.
Publish data, code, media, and non-traditional research outputs, showcasing all of the research at your institution.
A next-generation institutional repository to showcase your open access papers and theses that integrates with the wider research ecosystem.
Some institutions have created subgroup pages for research centers to allow them a branded space to display their outputs.

Whether it’s to display the outputs from a particular project or for assessment, several institutions use collections to group portfolios together. Some also include the documentation for assessment. To read more about portfolios, check out this case study.

If there’s a museum associated with your institution, they may benefit from using a Figshare subgroup for showcasing their exhibits.
Museum of Domestic Design & Architecture (MoDA)
Creating a subgroup for special collections is a great way of displaying the contents of the collection in a controlled, but public way.

Figshare can support university presses as subgroups and some university presses use separate portals.

Some institutions, like Utrecht University, use Figshare exclusively for learning objects. If your institution has a strong connection between teaching and learning, you may wish to upload teaching materials alongside research outputs.

Some institutions use their Figshare instance as a full institutional repository or as a theses repository.
University of Leicester Theses
Several institutions use their Figshare portal as an all-in-one institutional and data repository.
If your institution hosts conferences, you may want to create a subgroup to display outputs from the conference. These can be presentations, posters, conference proceedings, recordings from the event, and more. If you have attendees from outside the institution, you can configure a non-logged in submission workflow to accept submissions from external users. To set this up, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your institution may have archived research available on internal servers that would benefit from being made publicly available. Archived content can be harvested into your instance of Figshare using the API or we can assist you.

For project groups needing to work across institutions, Figshare projects may be a suitable platform. Users can invite people from outside the institution to a private project to collaborate, sharing data privately. If and when the project is ready to be shared, projects can be made publicly available.
