As of version 1.41 RSpace enables integration with Figshare. Figshare is an online digital repository where researchers can preserve and share research outputs, including figures, datasets, images, and videos. It is free to upload content and free to access and adheres to the principles of open data. In addition, if you have registered your ORCID ID with RSpace, it will be associated with all your Figshare exports.

Exporting Files to Figshare
Exporting RSpace files to Figshare is extremely easy with our Figshare integration:
- In the ‘Workspace’ select the file you wish to export
- Click on the ‘Export’ button that appears under the menu; a pop up window like the one in the screen shot below will appear
- Select a format and check the 'Export to a repository' option. Then, click 'NEXT'
- Fill out the required fields. These vary depending on the format you selected on the previous step. Then, click 'NEXT'
- Select ‘Figshare’ as the repository you wish to submit your export to and fill out the required fields. If you've got the DMPTool Integration enabled, you will be able to associate the export with a DMP, which will automatically add a link to the export in the "related works" section of the DMP. Once you are done, click 'EXPORT'.
- If successful you will receive a notification within RSpace containing a clickable link to the deposit in the repository (notifications can be accessed by clicking on the Globe icon in the menu bar)
