This is a short video explaining some of the benefits of using Figshare to disseminate research. Benefits for researchers include:

- instantly visual: your audience can view items straight from a web browser
- obtain a DOI for every item
- gain more citations
- track impact through views, downloads, altmetric scores, etc
- comply with funder policies
- share aspects of your research that might not make it into other outputs (articles, chapters)
- state exactly how you expect others to re-use your work with Creative Commons licences
