How do I add figures to my publications?

At the moment, it is only possible to add figures to articles you've added on ResearchGate. In the future, it will also be possible for all other publication types.

There are different ways to add figures to your articles depending on whether they already have figures added or not.

If your article doesn't already have any figures added:
1. Go to the article you wish to add figures to
2. At the bottom of the page, above the space where researchers can leave comments, you'll find a box telling you if various elements are missing from your publication
3. Click on the icon for Figures
4. Click the 'Add figures' button
5. Find and select the file or files you would like to add to your article
6. Add a caption with a short explanation of the figure you just added, then click 'Done'
7. You will now see a preview of your figure and caption.
8. If you wish to add more figures, simply click 'Upload Figures' in the top left-hand corner of the box
9. Once you are done adding figures, simply click the 'X' icon in the top right-hand corner of your screen.

If your article already has figures added and you would like to add more:


1. Click the blue Figures link at the very top of the page alongside links to other content such as citations and references
2. Click the 'Upload Figures' button that appears on the top left-hand side
3. Find and select the file you would like to add as a figure
4. Add a caption with a short explanation of the figure you just added, then click 'Done'
5. You will now see a preview of your figure and caption
6. If you wish to add more figures, simply click Upload Figures again
7. If you have no more figures to add, simply click the 'X' icon in the top right-hand corner of your screen.

How do I change, edit, or delete figures that have already been added to my articles?

1. Go to the article you wish to add figures to
2. Click the blue figures link at the very top of the page alongside links to other content such as citations and references
3. Click the blue edit icon in the shape of a pencil. You can find it next to the blue Like button
4. If you want to replace the figure, click 'Replace' Image and select the file you want to replace it with. Then click 'Done'
5. If you just want to edit the caption, simply click in the caption box and edit the text, then click 'Done'
6. To delete the entire figure including the caption, select 'Delete Figure' and confirm by clicking the red 'Yes' button.
