publish big datasets

Figshare has been helping researchers make their data openly available for more than 10 years. 
We want to offer a way to get more support for sharing larger datasets in a trusted generalist repository.

Figshare+ offers data deposit as a one-time Data Publishing Charge (DPC) to share the datasets and materials supporting a specific publication or project. Added features and expert guidance are also included for sharing your data FAIR-ly.

why we are offering this

We frequently get requests from researchers seeking to use figshare.com who need more storage space for their data or larger file size uploads. There are few options for researchers to share TBs of data in a FAIR way. There are also long term ongoing costs in ensuing the data persists.

Figshare+ offers data deposit as a one-time Data Publishing Charge (DPC) to share the datasets and materials supporting a specific publication or project. To be as transparent as possible, we can tell you that nearly all of the DPC cost goes towards covering our costs to host this data securely and redundantly in the cloud for a minimum of 10 years (a legal minimum - we aim for this data to persist “forever”). Many funders allow data sharing costs to be included in grant budgets, so you may be able to use grants funds to pay for Figshare+ and can include it in data management and sharing plans in funding proposals.

Because we want researchers to get the most out of their open data, Figshare+ also offers additional license options and metadata compared to figshare.com. During data deposit, personal email support is available and once submitted, a Figshare data expert will conduct a review of the metadata and a spot check of your dataset files and offer guidance, with the main aim of enhancing discoverability and reusability.
