The American Naturalist encourages authors to deposit the data associated with accepted papers in a public archive. For gene sequence data and phylogenetic trees, deposition in GenBank or TreeBASE, respectively, is required. There are many possible archives that may suit a particular data set, including the Dryad repository for ecological and evolutionary biology data (http://datadryad.org). Repository

Molecular Ecology Wiley Blackwell Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 5.325 5.966 No Yes Mix http://www.wiley.com/bw/submit.asp?ref=0962-1083&site=1 No Yes Supporting Information give authors the opportunity to present data in different formats than traditional print media. Large datasets can be submitted as separate files for on-line publication as Supporting Data. Supporting Data must be submitted during the review process. Please Note that supporting data should be uploaded in a separate file and given the file designation "Supporting Information for online publication only". Requested No Molecular Ecology expects, as a condition for publication, that data supporting the results in the paper should be archived in an appropriate public archive, such as GenBank, Gene Expression Omnibus, TreeBASE, Dryad, or the KNowledge Network for Biocomplexity. Data are important products of the scientific enterprise, and they should be preserved and usable for decades in the future. Authors may elect to have the data publicly available at time of publication, or, if the techNology of the archive allows, may opt to embargo access to the data for a period up to a year after publication. Exceptions may be granted at the discretion of the editor, especially for sensitive information such as human subject data or the location of endangered species. Our policy will t go into force until January 2011, but in the meantime, we encourage authors to submit their data to the relevant repositories. DNA sequence data from either Sanger or next generation sequencing should continue to be archived in GenBank or ather public database. Expression data should be submitted to the Gene Expression Omnibus or an equivalent database, whereas phylogenetic trees should be submitted to TreeBASE. More idiosyncratic data, such as microsatellite allele frequency data, can be archived in a more flexible digital data library such as the U.S. National Science Foundation-sponsored Dryad archive at http://datadryad.org.

Once the policy is in force in 2011, authors will be expected to archive the data supporting their results and conclusions, along with sufficient details so that a third party can interpret them correctly. As discussed by Whitlock et al. (2010), this will likely "require a short additional text document, with details specifying the meaning of each column in the data set. The preparation of such shareable data sets will be easiest if these files are prepared as part of the data analysis phase of the preparation of the paper, rather than after acceptance of a manuscript." || Repository

Authors have the option to have supplementary online files linked to

their articles (e.g., data and information that enhances, but is t essential for, understanding of the article's research question, methodology, results, analysis, and conclusions, and especially whose size or format would make inclusion in the article difficult) . These files are subject to the peer-review process and the decision to include supplementary files is made by the author in collaboration with the Guest Editor and the Publisher. Supplementary files will be posted in the BioOne database at the same time that the PDF and tagged SGML versions of an article are posted. All supplementary files should be smaller than 5 MB in size because of the difficulties that some users will experience in loading or downloading files of a larger size. Supplementary files should fall into one of the following categories: Dataset, Figure, Table, Text, Protocol, Audio, or Video. Supplementary files may be submitted in a variety of formats (including any standard MS Office format [Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Project, Access], PDF, TXT, CSV, AVI, VRML, SWF, MPG, MOV, TIF, EPS, JPG, GIF) and can be compressed (ZIP or SIT files), but should be publication-ready, since these files are t copyedited. The within-article text reference to a hotlinked supplementary file is as follows: "(Supplementary Table 1; see the file link in the online version of this article at http://www.bioone.org)."The inclusion of supplementary files is considered optional and requires a subvention of $25 per file to help cover databasing costs. || No || No || N/A || N/A || No

Molecular Ecology Resources Wiley Blackwell Ecology, Evolutionary Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology NA N/A No Yes Mix http://www.wiley.com/bw/submit.asp?ref=1755-098X&site=1 No Yes Supplementary Data must be submitted during the review process. Requested No Our current archiving policy is applies only to DNA sequence data, which must be made available on GenBank or ather public archive. However, the new policy will be applicable to all data supporting results in papers published in Molecular Ecology Resources. Our policy will t go into force until January 2011, but in the meantime, we encourage authors to submit their data to the relevant repositories. DNA sequence data from either Sanger or next generation sequencing should continue to be archived in GenBank or ather public database. Expression data should be submitted to the Gene Expression Omnibus or an equivalent database, whereas phylogenetic trees should be submitted to TreeBASE. More idiosyncratic data, such as microsatellite allele frequency data, can be archived in a more flexible digital data library such as the U.S. National Science Foundation-sponsored Dryad archive at http://datadryad.org.

Once the policy is in force in 2011, authors will be expected to archive the data supporting their results and conclusions, along with sufficient details so that a third party can interpret them correctly. As discussed by Whitlock et al. (2010), this will likely "require a short additional text document, with details specifying the meaning of each column in the data set. The preparation of such shareable data sets will be easiest if these files are prepared as part of the data analysis phase of the preparation of the paper, rather than after acceptance of a manuscript." || Repository

Accession codes must be provided at the time a revised manuscript is returned to the Editorial Office. To avoid delays in publication of the manuscript, we encourage authors to deposit relevant data in public databases prior to submission. The authors may request that the data be stored in a confidential section of the database, in which they can request passwords from the database administrators, and these should be passed on to the Editorial Office to allow the editors and referees to anymously access the information during the review process. The ISME Journal requires submission of vel sequence and structural data to the appropriate public databases. We will t accept an article for publication until the relevant entry codes have been provided. These must be quoted in the text of the article.

Sequence data

Nucleotide sequence data can be submitted in electronic form to any one of the three major collaborative databases:

The suggested wording for referring to accession number information in journal articles is 'These sequence data have been submitted to the DDBJ/EMBL/GenBank databases under accession . U12345'.

Structural data

The ISME Journal accepts and follows the recommendations of the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr), with regard to the deposition and release of macromolecular structural data. These guidelines are set out in the article by the IUCr Commission on Biological Macromolecules in Acta Crystallographica (2000), D56, 2. In summary, they state that all publications must be accompanied by deposition of both the atomic coordinates and the structure-factor amplitudes in the appropriate database (PDB or NDB). In the case of low-resolution structures for which only a chain trace is reported, a set of C alpha positions and structure-factor amplitudes may be sufficient.

For NMR structures, data deposited should include resonance assignments, and all restraints used in structure determination (Es, spin-spin coupling constants, amide exchange rates, etc) and the derived atomic coordinates for both an individual structure and for a family of acceptable structures.

Structures of biological macromolecules solved by electron microscopy must be submitted to the EMDB database at http://www.ebi.ac.uk/msd/Deposition.html For a brief description of the database, see Tagari et al. (2002) Trends Biochem Sci 27:589.

Under exceptional circumstances and upon request, the Editors may grant a delay of up to 6 months for deposition or the release of deposited data.

Microarray data

Authors should refer to the MGED open letter specifying microarray standards (http://www.mged.org/Workgroups/MIAME/miame_checklist.html). The ISME Journal requires submission of microarray data to the ArrayExpress (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/arrayexpress/) or GEO (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/geo/) databases, and provision of accession numbers before acceptance of the paper for publication || Repository
