What it means: Number of new items that come into the submission system
How it’s calculated: Manually, using Journal Submission Tracking spreadsheet
Where it’s reported: Weekly Curation Summaries (broken down into integrated and non-integrated). Reflects the status of submissions as of 11:59 p.m. on Thursday night prior to the Friday when the report is generated. Since it is possible for a small number of integrated submissions to be submitted to review and then archived within the same week, this may not be an exact representation of all new items received in a given week.
- Integrated deposits: This is the number of deposits from integrated journals that were added to the public archive PLUS the number that were added to publication blackout (that is “hidden pending article publication”). Does not include submissions into review.
- Non-integrated deposits: This is the number of new non-integrated deposits that were submitted after the associated article was published (these are added straight to the public archive) PLUS the number of new deposits added to publication blackout (that is “hidden pending article publication”).
- Review submissions: This is the total number of data submissions that were added to the review workspace; only a portion of these will move on to be archived. Any submissions that went into review and were archived in the same week are only counted in (a) above.
For the future: Make this completely automated
What it means: Number of items that are accepted by curators and have a successful payment. These items can be either archived (public) or in publication blackout (hidden).
How it’s calculated: Database query for all “completed” items in the shopping cart that have not been previously reported. Items are “completed” when they are approved by a curator (i.e. enter publication blackout or go directly into the archive).
Where it’s reported:
- Monthly shopping cart report
- Monthly payment plan statements
- Monthly board report (financial portion - Table 1)
Data packages released (aka “archived” or “published”)
What it means: Packages that have moved into the public archive, either by being released immediately after curation or released from pub blackout. (Individual files may still be under embargo).
How it’s calculated: Database query for items that are in_archive=true and belong to the collection of data packages, sorted by archive date.
Where it’s reported:
- Bottom of Dryad homepage (total packages in the public archive)
- Monthly board report (history graph - Figure 1)
- Public statistics available through https://github.com/datadryad/dryad-data
- Weekly Curation Summaries (these are calculated manually)
- Integrated deposits: The number of new data submissions added to the public archive can be derived by subtracting the number of new deposits that are in the “hidden queue” from the the total.
- Non-integrated deposits: The number of new data submissions added to the public archive can be derived by subtracting the number of new deposits that are in the “hidden queue” from the the total.
- Previously hidden submissions that entered the main repository: This number is a total of all items that were moved out of publication blackout and into the public archive in a given week (for both integrated and non-integrated journals).
- So, for example, in the week ending 2014-10-09, 32 data packages from integrated journals were published, 1 non-integrated data package was published, and 28 packages were released from publication blackout, for a total of 61 data packages released.
