Instructions for adding your 2017 Summer Meeting content to the ESIP Figshare Portal.

  1. If you want to upload to your own account, get a Figshare membership (this way you can connect up your submission with your profile and your ORCid account).
    1. encourage your co-authors to get Figshare memberships (same reasons).
      IMPORTANT: ADD THIS KEYWORD PHRASE: “esip summer 2017”  to the object/file/fileset.  This will connect your work to the ESIP Summer 2017 collection in the portal.
    2. NOTE: your content will not be added immediately to the portal (this is a batch job that happens once a month).
  2. If you just want to upload to the Esip Portal, go HERE, and START by uploading the first document. You can upload more than one document at a time. IMPORTANT: ADD THIS KEYWORD PHRASE: “esip summer 2017”  to the object/file/fileset.  This will connect your work to the ESIP Summer 2017 collection in the portal (See illustration below). NOTE: your content will be reviewed before it becomes public.
  3. WE ARE EARLY ADOPTERS: so Figshare will be associating tagged content from your figshare account to the ESIP Portal on a ONCE-A-WEEK schedule.  Do not be worried if your content does not show up immediately in the ESIP portal.  This will become more automatic by the Winter 2018 Meeting.

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.
