The platform deployed for the Sustainable Digital Scholarship platform is provided by Figshare, an online open-access research repository. Oxford’s Figshare-based platform allows researchers: to deposit their research outputs, ranging from text to images to audio-visual media to code or .XML files (for example, TEI files); to tag them with custom keywords and metadata; to organise them into datasets or collections; to share them with collaborators, researchers, and the general public; and to search across their datasets by keywords and metadata fields. For more on what Figshare can do for you, see our service pages.
Figshare is a popular platform for sharing research data and outputs across several academic disciplines. By partnering with Oxford University on the Sustainable Digital Scholarship service, the Sustainable Digital Scholarship service are pioneering its use as a repository for Digital Humanities research and beyond, and working to expand the capabilities of the Figshare platform.
