Information About the Pilot

Click here to apply for the Research Data Publication Service.

Beginning in August 2018, the UNLV Libraries has partnered with Springer Nature for a pilot data service through which UNLV researchers will have their research data described, stored, and made available through figshare (for specifics, see below). This service supports both new datasets and those linked to manuscripts already published (independent of where their research was published or in what format it was published). With up to 50 GB of storage available, this data service provides ample storage for most researchers and there is an option to purchase more storage if needed.
