Using an Article DOI or PubMed ID in the Submission System
This page describes how to use an article DOI during the data submission process.
The Dryad submission system enables authors to enter an article DOI on the second screen of the submission system, instead of typing in the article's bibliographic details (Volume, Number, Year). This simplifies and expedites the step of describing the article, and ensures that the details are accurate.
In the submission system, the author is asked to describe the publication associated with the data files. On the first screen, if the author indicates that the associated article has been published, a box appears for inputting the article DOI or PMID. When the author enters a DOI or PMID, and clicks to accept the CC0 waiver, then clicks Next to move to the next screen, most of the article details (title, authors, abstract) will be present on the page.
This feature is part of release 1.11, made available in April 2012.
