Elements of journal data policy

We recommend that journals provide explicit guidance to authors regarding data availability and data citation in order to promote best practice, including:

  1. In the instructions to authors, name relevant repositories (incl. Dryad) for different datatypes, and/or describe criteria for allowable repositories such as public access, terms of reuse, guarantee of preservation, metadata standards, and community adoption.
    • Where it is named, please provide a link to the Dryad repository URL, http://www.datadryad.org/
    • For integrated journals, please let authors know when and how integrated data submission to Dryad will occur.
  2. Give instructions for inclusion of data identifiers and data citations in the final manuscript
    • CrossRef recommends that the data DOI be included in the text of the article where the data availability is described, and additionally that full bibliographic form of the data citation be included in the references.
    • Example of data DOI in article text (the full URL is preferred over the shortened form of the DOI): "Data deposited in the Dryad repository: http://dx.doi.org/10.5061/dryad.j512f21p"
    • Example of data citation to be included in references: "Sadd BM (2011) Data from: Food-environment mediates the outcome of specific interactions between a bumblebee and its trypanosome parasite. Dryad Digital Repository. http://dx.doi.org/10.5061/dryad.t903h"
