Collaborative research and sharing data ahead of paper publication

Fabio Caraffini is a senior lecturer in Computer Science and Mathematics at De Montfort University (DMU). Fabio’s public research data is available on dmu.figshare.com and his profile page is available here.

This is a case study conducted by Megan Hardeman.

Key Points

• By sharing his high-resolution, multispectral images prior to a paper publication on DMU Figshare, Fabio and his colleagues are building public engagement with their research.

• Storing large amounts of data in DMU Figshare allows Fabio and his colleagues to link to that data in a paper, which they would have otherwise just had to describe in the body of the paper.
