TMBMC has a new “Methods and Data” article type that allows authors to submit manuscripts that include experimental protocols, data sets, and data analysis methods. These manuscripts should encourage growth in the use of experimental methods and the use and analysis of established data sets.

Thus, a “Methods and Data” submission does not need to verify the underlying research. Instead, a submission should focus on the description of the experimental setup and the value of the provided data set.Read more
