Figshare

Figshare, an online digital repository for academic research, has launched a tool that enables authors to share their research outputs more efficiently during the publishing process.

Springer Nature is the first publisher to pilot this new data submission portal and has worked closely with Figshare to build a customised service to support open research. The tool will reduce the amount of information authors must complete to share data supporting their publications.
