Dryad is very pleased to announce a new partnership with the University of Chicago Press – Journals Division. Founded in 1890, Chicago is one of the oldest and currently the largest continuously operating university press in the United States. Chicago has recently integrated two additional journals with Dryad: Physiological and Biochemical Zoology (PBZ) and International Journal of Plant Sciences (IJPS) and is sponsoring Data Publication Charges (DPCs) for both titles. PBZ and IJPS join sister publication, The American Naturalist, a Dryad partner since its inception.
- Ensures bidirectional links between the article and the data, and increased visibility for both
- Simplifies the process of data submission for authors
- Takes advantage of Dryad’s professional curators who perform basic checks to ensure discoverability and proper metadata
- Ensures that the data is freely accessible once the article becomes available online
Physiological and Biochemical Zoology publishes original research in the areas of animal physiology and biochemistry. PBZ focuses on ecological, evolutionary and behavioral aspects of morphological, physiological, and biochemical mechanisms. PBZ’s integration will allow authors to make their data available to journal editors during peer review.
The International Journal of Plant Sciences has been publishing plant science research since 1875. IJPS covers a wide range of topics including genetics and genomics, developmental and cell biology, biochemistry and physiology, morphology and anatomy, systematics, evolution, paleobotany, ecology, and plant-microbe interactions. IJPS will accept data from authors at the time of article acceptance.
The University of Chicago Press – Journals Division is increasing its commitment to authors and the STM field by making it easy to publish datasets alongside the manuscript, and by taking the extra step of covering the cost of data publication on behalf of authors.
