Atypon integrates figshare into platform

Share this on social media:

Atypon and figshare are working together to make authors’ supplemental data more discoverable on publishers’ Literatum-powered websites. Publishers on Literatum 14.1, the newest generation of Atypon’s platform for professional and scholarly publishers, can now embed tables, datasets, videos, and other supplemental material from figshare on article pages in Literatum via the figshare widget.

In addition to enhancing article pages on the publisher’s site, figshare also provides publishers with their own figshare portal where users can browse and filter the supplemental material based on the type of data and the impact.

The first Atypon customer to get this integration is Taylor & Francis. Taylor & Francis’s figshare portal currently hosts over 1,400 supplemental files. Every file is citable with a DataCite DOI allocated at the point of publication and stored under a Creative Commons Licence.

'Supplementary information is critical to the research process, and figshare’s service allows us to make this material discoverable to our users,' said Gillian Howcroft, director of eProducts at Taylor & Francis.
