Figshare for Institutions — Implementation Overview

  • Total standard implementation time typically takes between 12-16 weeks, depending on your requirements. Figshare will provide implementation project support, up to 6 months, after which additional fees may be charged for certain types of delays.
  • Migration of records from a legacy repository occur after repository implementation. Migrations are typically planned to take an additional 12 weeks.
  • The Implementation Manager introduced by your Figshare Sales Account Manager will be your point of contact throughout the implementation. Before the implementation project is completed, your Implementation Manager will introduce you to all formal communication and support channels to follow thereafter.
  • Communications throughout the implementation phase will be managed via Basecamp (, which is monitored daily by our Implementations Managers and Engineers. By using Basecamp, we ensure that all documents, questions and conversations are held in a single place so that all communications can be seen be those involved in the process.
