Instructions for adding content to the ESIP Figshare Portal. [updated 2/12/18]
- To upload to the Esip Portal, go HERE <http://esip.figshare.com/submit> and START by uploading the first document. You can upload more than one document at a time and also add more documents later.
- Your content will need to be reviewed before it becomes public. Be Patient. Staff will get to this soon. Staff will also make sure that your content is included in the right sub-portal (each meeting gets its own sub-portal).
- You will need to put in the names of all the authors. If an author has their own Figshare account then this submission will be linked out to that account, as well as belonging to the ESIP portal. If your author does not have a Figshare account, that is fine, they are still listed in the citation.
NOTE: When you Publish to Figshare you are making a public document with its own DOI. Be very sure that you are uploading the right content/versions, and that you take some care with the metadata. IF you need to update this later, it will cause another DOI to be generated.
NOTE 2: If you are contributing multiple files for a workshop/breakout session, you can create a single “fileset” for all your session ppts, etc.. This will have a single DOI and each contributor will be a co-author. Just open a new “create new item”, give your session its title and upload all the files before publishing. Upload this to your account with the above keyword.
Videos? ESIP has a youtube channel for these. Upload them there (or contact STAFF for permission to do so, and then upload them) and add the URL to your Figshare content.
