Any Figlinq file or folder can be made public simply by changing its status to 'Public'. This makes it publicly accessible through Figlinq's feed and search page, where all public files can be searched and explored, as well as through direct links.

Figlinq strives to preserve all public and private files and maintain their findability, accessibility and reusability forever!

Publish smart manuscripts in five easy steps

Figlinq can create and maintain the connection between a published paper (or, in fact, any online resource) and all related data, plots, images, figures, documents and collections. Here are three easy steps to achieve this:

  1. Include everything you want to publish in a collection.
  2. If you have not done this yet, put the collection and all included files and folders into a single parent folder. You can keep their default 'Private' sharing status.
  3. Set the accessibility status of the parent folder to public.
  4. Copy the public collection link (see below how).
  5. Include the public collection link somewhere in your paper ('Data availability' section may be best for this).

That's it! Your paper will be permanently linked to all related data, analyses, plots, images and figures. All these files can now be freely accessed and reused by anyone!

As every file in Figlinq has a unique identifier, you can also link to each file individually. For example, you can add to your paper links to each figure, plot or even dataset!

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

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.
