figshare is a multidisciplinary repository where researchers can share their research data online under the Creative Commons license. It gives users unlimited public space and 1GB of private storage space for free. All file formats can be published, including figures, datasets, media (including video), papers (including pre-prints), posters and filesets (groups of files). All research data including negative data published on figshare is allocated a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) at point of publication.
Like many other digital repositories, figshare promotes the concept of open access publishing and makes research data easily citable and discoverable.
