How to change your name

To change your name in your Figshare profile, click on the dropdown menu in the top right and go to Profile. Under Professional details, you can change your first and last name. Making this change will update your profile page to display your new name and will affect new items created in your account moving forward.

To retrospectively change the name on any item you previously published, please contact and we'd be happy to update the name on your previously-published items.
