myResearch is both the university research management system and the new publications repository. It stores descriptions and copies of traditional reportable research outputs and its use enables research publications to be connected with information about our researchers, their grants and projects. Researchers are encouraged to link their research outputs in myResearch to relevant items in monash.figshare.
Monash Collections Online

LabArchives is an electronic lab notebook for the day-today recording of research and replaces traditional paper research notebooks. It provides comprehensive version control and has been cleared to store confidential and critical data. LabArchives content cannot be published.
GitHub is a widely used version control repository primarily for code. Linking your monash.figshare and GitHub accounts allows you to make public the code associated with a research output, and make clear which version of the code you used.
On the My data page, next to the ‘+Create a new item’ button is the Octocat GitHub icon. Clicking on the icon takes you to a page that will state you have no connected GitHub accounts. Click the ‘Connect’ button. You will be prompted to login to GitHub. Once logged in the next page asks you to click on the ‘Authorize application’ button which allows your monash.figshare account to connect to your GitHub account. This will take you back to monash.figshare and display your GitHub repositories. To import, select the repositories then click ‘Import selected repos.’ You will then have the option of adding further information or closing the item.
