We are delighted to announce the launch of a new partnership with The Company of Biologists to support their authors in making the data underlying their research available to the community.
The Company of Biologists is a not-for-profit publishing organization dedicated to supporting and inspiring the biological community. The Company publishes five specialist peer-reviewed journals:
- Journal of Cell Science
- Journal of Experimental Biology
- Disease Models & Mechanisms and
- Biology Open
The Company of Biologists offers further support to the biological community by facilitating scientific meetings, providing travel grants for researchers and supporting research societies.
Manuscript submission for all COB journals is now integrated with data submission to Dryad, meaning COB authors can conveniently submit their data packages and manuscripts at the same time. Dryad then makes the data securely available to journal reviewers, and releases them to the public if/when the paper is published.
We congratulate The Company of Biologists on taking this important step to help facilitate open data. To learn more about how your organization or journal can partner with Dryad, please contact us.
