Nature journals include Dryad among recommended repositories

Nature journals now list Dryad among their suggested data repositories. Citing “an inherent principle of publication is that others should be able to replicate and build upon the authors’ published claims,” the editorial policies mandate data sharing and archiving.

The policy on data sets reads:

A condition of publication in a Nature journal is that authors are required to make materials, data and associated protocols promptly available to others without preconditions.

Data sets must be made freely available to readers from the date of publication, and must be provided to editors and peer-reviewers at submission, for the purposes of evaluating the manuscript.

For the following types of data set, submission to a community-endorsed, public repository is mandatory. Accession numbers must be provided in the paper. Examples of appropriate public repositories are listed below.
