DryadDryad organizationResearchers in sciences and medicine, whose article is under review, has been accepted for publication or has been published. Historically, the repository has been strongest in the life sciences. No restrictionsResearch data underlying scientific and medical publications. Most data in the repository is associated with peer-reviewed journal articles, but data associated with non-peer reviewed publications from other reputable sources (such as dissertations) is also accepted. English language only. Data that was originally collected for another publication may be submitted as long as it is referenced by the current publication. Non-data files may also be submitted provided the files are integral to the publication and can be released in the public domain; note that policies for the use of Dryad versus Supplementary Materials vary by journal.10 GB max data set. Larger are accepted but are subject to additional fees.Partner journals send notices of new manuscripts, so there is no re-entering of metadata while submitting in this case. Otherwise: 1) core metadata like authors, title, journal etc and a legal affirmation on behalf of all the authors 2) an optional ReadMe file for each individual file or for data package see http://datadryad.org/pages/faqDOI is assigned for each data package and data file see http://datadryad.org/pages/faq#info-doiDOI on the data package levelSeparate (DSpace) account. Future plans: support for OAuth that would allow login and DSpace EPerson creation through ORCIDs. This would mean that researchers who already have an account on ORCID don't need to get a separate new password for DSpace.By default, data are embargoed until journal article publicationOn site: number of views, downloads, citations. ImpactStory: total downloads, package viewsN/Ahttp://wiki.datadryad.org/DataONE_RESTful_APICC0Submission fee if not paid by journal or other organizationNon-profit organization registered in the US. About submission pricing plans see http://datadryad.org/pages/pricingData packages are preserved within the CLOCKSS Archive (no Finnish members at the moment)http://datadryad.org/Data can be made securely available for peer review if the manuscript has been submitted to a participating partner journal. For journals, see http://datadryad.org/pages/integratedJournals ; Newer versions of data can be submitted ; Dryad curators perform metadata quality control. Dryad
