Organizing research data and conference materials using projects

Bhaskar works with pharmaceutical technologies as part of Professor Geoff Smith’s research group (for more
on Geoff and his research on DMU Figshare, check out the case study at
Smith/11280563). Geoff introduced Bhaskar and his colleagues to Figshare for organizing and sharing, if possible,their research.

Bhaskar and his colleagues use projects in DMU Figshare to organize and collaborate with researchers, both internal and external.

• They also use projects to store protocols, procedures, and safety documents for new PhD students, saving time and effort duplicating resources by inviting new students to the project.

• Bhaskar has used the private link feature — where you can generate a private link for your item and share that with someone else before making it publicly available
— to share a conference poster with his supervisor to look at before publishing on DMU Figshare.
