Recommenders for PCI Ecology and reviewers must ensure that the data for recommended preprints are available to readers, through deposition in an open data repository, such as Zenodo, Dryad or institutional repositories, for example. Deposited data must have a digital object identifier (DOI). Recommenders and reviewers must also check that details of the quantitative analyses (e.g. data treatment and statistical scripts in R, bioinformatic pipelines scripts, etc.) in the recommended preprints are available to the readers, as appendices or supplementary online materials (in this case, the supplementary material must have a digital object identifier (DOI)), for example.
The Managing Board of PCI Ecology has the right to exclude recommenders from PCI Ecology if they do not respect these rules.
