Figshare's aim is to make unpublished research and data accessible by publishing it using a liberal creative commons. Research is posted in a citable manner. Recognizing that some research needs to be kept private, Figshare also provides account holders with a free gig for private storage. Uploading is straightforward and Figshare accepts any file format. Researchers uploading material get a profile page, and are encourage to share as much as possible to increase their impact. The Figshare REST API amplifies the impact of the shared data by giving developers access
