"Ahead of Open Data Day, Frontiers, a leading Open Science platform, today announces its integration with Figshare’s online digital repository. This broadens the types of supplementary data that can be included with Frontiers articles, and enhances the visualization, discoverability, citation and sharing of research data outputs. The new service -- which is provided at no extra charge to authors -- also helps Frontiers authors to satisfy institutional and funder requirements for open and FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) data.
Supplementary data uploaded through the Frontiers platform will be automatically transferred to Figshare upon publication, and visualized directly in the article through an integrated widget that displays spreadsheets, images, graphs, videos and other data types. This allows readers to more easily view supplementary material.
All research outputs uploaded through the Frontiers platform are also viewable on a Frontiers data portal hosted by Figshare. All uploaded research outputs are citable and have a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), allowing authors to see views, downloads, citations and Altmetric information for their research outputs. The user-friendly website also facilitates the discovery, sharing and reuse of research outputs...."
