Taylor & Francis and Figshare - Making Research More Discoverable

Journal publishing moves another step forward today with the announcement of a partnership between academic publishers Taylor & Francis and Figshare, an online repository which enables researchers to securely host, publish and share all their research.

Authors who publish with Taylor & Francis journals will see their supplemental material in a new online format from today, as tables, datasets, filesets, videos and graphs become instantly viewable on Taylor & Francis Online, easily discoverable from search engines and quickly hosted on Figshare. Beginning with some 468 articles across twelve journals on the Taylor & Francis Environment and Agriculture list, this new service will see authors with journal articles currently in production with Taylor & Francis use the Figshare technology to display their supplemental data.

Not only will authors see their supplemental material in a much more engaging format (instantly viewable using the Figshare widget, once readers select the supplemental tab on Taylor & Francis Online) but they will also be able to share this material more easily and track usage through Figshare’s metric functions. Every file uploaded to Figshare will be easily citable (with a DataCite DOI (http://www.doi.org/factsheets/DOIKeyFacts.html) allocated at the point of publication) and will be stored under a Creative Commons License. For every item on Figshare there will also be a link back to its corresponding article on Taylor & Francis Online, so not only is the supplemental content more discoverable, so is the article.

David Green, Global Publishing Director for Journals at Taylor & Francis, said of the new initiative, “We’re delighted to be able to bring this innovative service to authors and to anyone with an interest in research, whether they are working within or outside the academic and scientific communities. Using Figshare will enable us to make supplementary material, which is fundamental to the research process, discoverable to all, in as usable a fashion as possible. Simply by keying in a simple term to a search engine users will be able to unearth a wealth of data, aiding future research and increasing the visibility of authors’ work.”

“We have a vision to change the face of academic publishing with the improved dissemination and discoverability of all scholarly research and content. It’s a privilege to be partnering with such a forward –thinking publisher as Taylor & Francis.” said Mark Hahnel, founder of Figshare.

Figshare launches on Taylor & Francis Online from 30th January 2014 and all new journal articles with supplemental material will automatically be uploaded to Figshare from this date.

About Figshare


Figshare was the brainchild of Mark Hahnel who, whilst studying for his PhD in stem cell biology at Imperial College, London became frustrated at not being able to publish ALL his scientific research. Figshare is the research data management tool for researchers, academic institutions and publishers. The platform allows any file format to be made visualisable in the browser so that figures, datasets, media, papers, posters, presentations and filesets can be disseminated in a way that the traditional scholarly publishing model does not allow. Figshare is a portfolio company of Digital Science. For more information, visit http://figshare.com and www.digital-science.com

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
