Importantly, Figshare can also be used as a repository to host non-traditional research outputs (NTROs) - for example, Plan for green urban precincts in the recovering city. Research added to Figshare is assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which helps you to track and promote your research data and outputs.
Researcher profiles and identifiers connect you within networks of researchers and maximise the visibility of your research outputs and impact. All researchers and graduate researchers are encouraged to establish an ORCID researcher ID, along with other profiles relevant to your area of research.
Engaging with social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn can be an excellent method of communicating with other researchers and practitioners in your field, as well as to a wider audience beyond academia. Social media can also provide an opportunity to network with — as well as follow and discover — key people and organisations within your community of practice.
