Methods and Data Submissions

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.

All submissions must be based on high-quality research that has already been published or accepted in a peer-reviewed venue, either by the same authors or by another group, and this must be clearly indicated. 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.
