Figshare & Sympectic APAC User Conference 2024

We’re delighted to announce that we will be holding an in-person 2-day event for our APAC user community. The event will feature presentations from both the Symplectic Team and the Figshare Team, including themes across Open Access and Open Data, research funding workflows, and updates looking forward to ERA and PBRF.


Date: February 19-20, 2024

Location: Sydney, Australia


We can’t wait to see you in person again and are currently working on building out the program for the event. We will communicate further details in the coming weeks.

If you’d like to present and share your experiences on a particular topic, we welcome client talks and would love to hear from you – please let us know your ideas when registering.


Attendance is free but we ask that you register, as places are limited.

With this partnership, we have the opportunity to position ourselves as
a world leader in the development of the scholarly ecosystem.

I cannot overstate how pleased we have been.
We have to have confidence to work with a partner
for at least 5 years on a project of this size.

“Faculty need only spend perhaps less than an hour a year to prepare and submit their annual reports.”

"Leveraging the interoperability between Symplectic Elements and DSpace has increased policy-driven institutional repository deposits by over 350%."

Ellen Phillips, Open Access Specialist, Boston University

Elements elegantly connected our multi-university system providing a
single source of truth throughout OIEx.

The University measures the individual research activity of academic staff. This Measure of Research Activity (MoRA) requires the collection of publication data from faculty. Symplectic Elements supports this beautifully.

Floris van der Leest, Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia

[Elements] will help to bring transparency to the richness of thought showcased within non-traditional publications, providing a more holistic representation of faculties’ scholarly work.

Caleb Smith, University of Michigan

Feedback to date has been extremely positive from all levels across the University, with individual academics and colleagues actively promoting the ease of use of the system.
