Consultation with the Sustainable Digital Scholarship team is free. We’re happy to offer advice on your options for how and where to publish and store your research data, as well as key considerations on how to structure your research
Depositing data on the Figshare platform is free for existing projects within the Humanities Division. If you have completed the funded stage of your project, or are currently working within the funding period, we are willing to host and migrate your data for free.
We ask projects yet to apply for funding, or ones from outside the Humanities Division, to contribute to the costs of running the Sustainable Digital Scholarship service. Our sample costs for research projects can be seen below. We aim to be highly competitive, and our fees only reflect our staff and hosting costs. Using the Figshare platform as a repository for your data avoids any costs for building or hosting your own database or data repository.
