Publishing

Any FiglinQ content (figure, chart or the associated data grids), can be published simply by changing the status to public. This makes the content publicly accessible through FiglinQ feed and search page, where all public content can be searched and explored. Note that simply making your content public does not connect it to your publications.

Data-connected (smart) manuscripts#

One of FiglinQ's core features is the ability to create and permanently maintain the connection between your charts/figures, the underlying data, and your publication. Only two easy steps are required for this:

  1. Set the accessibility status of your content to public (instructions here).
  2. Include link(s) to the content in your manuscript.

Let's examine the second, critical step more closely. The example below demonstrates a manuscript section before and after including two links to FiglinQ content (two figures). The section comes from a data-connected smart manuscript recently published in Nature by van Neerven and colleagues.


Before:

We established a co-culture system of WT and Apc-/- organoids transduced with distinct fluorescent labels (Extended Data Fig. 1a). Whilst the relative surface contribution in WT/WT co-cultures remained constant over time (Figs. 1a, b), Apc-/- organoids rapidly dominated the co-cultures with WT organoids (Figs. 1c, d), mimicking previous observations in vivo3,7.

After (added links highlighted):

We established a co-culture system of WT and Apc-/- organoids transduced with distinct fluorescent labels (Extended Data Fig. 1a)(FiglinQ). Whilst the relative surface contribution in WT/WT co-cultures remained constant over time (Figs. 1a, b)(FiglinQ), Apc-/- organoids rapidly dominated the co-cultures with WT organoids (Figs. 1c, d), mimicking previous observations in vivo3,7.


You can name the links "FiglinQ", as in this example, or however you wish, but they must point to the content's location on FiglinQ, for instance: https://create.figlinq.com/~FiglinQ/7, where "FiglinQ" is your user name and "7" is the ID of the content.

Note that you can link directly to individual charts or, like in the example above, to figures that contain multiple charts and associated data grids. If your figures are internally connected (also like in the example above), it is, in principle, sufficient to include just a single link in your manuscript, wherever it can be easily found by the readers. For the convenience of the readers, however, we recommend including a direct link to each figure, near to the location in the manuscript where the figure is mentioned for the first time.

Getting the links to your content#

Each link uniquely identifies the associated content. Finding the link is very easy:

To get the link from within My Files area, click the icon, click the "Link & privacy" tab and copy the link location. Note that the connection between your manuscript and the figures, charts or data will only be maintained if their accessibility is set to public.
