How to get an account?

In order to have access to the ERIM data repository, you need to have an account. NEVER create an account on www.figshare.com. Every ERIM member can get his/her institutional account. There are more ways how you can get one:

  • for all ERIM members (status 03/2019) an account is automatically created for you and detailed instructions are sent to you via e-mail. In case of any further questions send an e-mail to data@rsm.nl .
  • for all other RSM and ESE researchers please contact ERIM at data@rsm.nl .

How to get other researchers on board?

Research is a collaborative work. You can easily collaborate with your colleagues all around the globe using Figshare. There are three possibilties how to do that:

  • An institution where your collaborator works use also Figshare. Simply add him/her to your project.
  • Your collaborator has an account on www.figshare.com. Simply add him/her to your project.
  • Your collaborator hasn't got an account on www.figshare.com. Inviting a user to a project who doesn't have an  account already will prompt them to first create an account and will then automatically add them to a project
