Powered by Figshare technology, Future Science Group (FSG) today launches a repository for all supplementary material published within its journals, starting with two of its publications: Future Science OA and BioTechniques. Because every item on FSG’s fully-branded Figshare Portal will be assigned a DOI, they will be easily citable as well as discoverable on their own. FSG’s Figshare Portal is available at future-science-group.figshare.com.
FSG Figshare Portal users can interact with the content to track views, downloads, citations, and view Altmetric Badges, as well as download and reuse the data. Data itself will be thoroughly documented to meet the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) for optimum reproducibility. Users can also be directed to the related Future Science Group publication from the data page on Figshare.
“We are delighted to be working with Figshare to further improve the reach of the research we publish,” said Phil Garner, Managing Director at Future Science Group. “Supplementary material provides a wealth of data and information, and the new Figshare Portal will provide a vital resource for our users.”
“It’s a pleasure to be able to collaborate with Future Science Group to bring the data published in their journals to the forefront,” said Mark Hahnel, CEO and Founder of Figshare. “We’re excited to continue FSG’s commitment to progressive publishing with the launch of their new Figshare Portal.”
