The responsibilities and benefits of partnership in the Dryad Consortium

Journals can become partners in the Dryad Consortium. Current interim guidelines of the consortium stipulate that partner journals must:

  1. Approve the JDAP or a similar policy.
  2. Appoint a representative to sit on the Dryad Consortium Management Board.
  3. Cooperate with Dryad staff to integrate the journal submission system with Dryad's submission process.
  4. Have a commitment 
  5. Abide by the decisions of the Dryad Consortium Board, including financial obligations.

It is expected that partner journals will:

  • Request that their authors 
deposit relevant data to Dryad. This request usually appears in acceptance letters sent to authors.
  • Provide readers of the journal information about related content in Dryad. This typically consists of a published Dryad identifier (DOI) in the article and a link to the related Dryad content in the electronic edition article.

Benefits of partnership:

  • Each partner journal is eligible to vote on all Dryad policy decisions.
  • Partner journals may integrate their manuscript approval process with the Dryad submission system.
  • Partner journals receive regular reports about submissions to Dryad associated with their articles.
  • Dryad users will be able to browse content associated with specific partner journals. (under development)
  • Content in Dryad associated with a partner journal will display the journal's logo or cover image. (under development)
  • The features and capabilities of Dryad are prioritized by their value to partner journals. This includes which specialized repositories are selected for one-stop data deposition from Dryad.

Potential partners will want to read through the Dryad Partner Fact Sheet for further information.
