These statistics come from figshare, and serve as an indicator of how many times the data held has been downloaded, viewed or cited from the figshare “widget”, which makes this data visible in platforms such as Dimensions. Figshare is a repository where users can make all of their research outputs available in a citable, shareable and discoverable manner. It is one of several Digital Science companies that collaborates to produce all of the great functions found in Dimensions.
