Connecting your figshare and Github account is the first step to archiving your Github repos in figshare so that they can be cited and reused along with any related datasets.
- Figshare will zip your entire repo and import a copy.
- If your repo has multiple releases, you can choose which release to import. If your repo does not have releases, it will import the latest commit.
- You can choose to auto-sync figshare and github, which will automatically import and version a copy of your github repo every time you create a new release of that repo.
- Login to figshare, and under the My data tab click on the Octocat icon next to the Create a new item button.
