Reviewing data visualization files

Authors may add research data, including data visualizationsto their submission to enable readers to interact and engage more closely with their research after publication. Please be aware that links to data might be present in the submission files. Manuscripts may also contain database identifiers or accession numbers (e.g. genes) in relation to our database linking program. These items should also receive your attention during the peer review process.

On EES, links to data visualization files and information on their type can be found in the supplementary materials section, at the end of the PDF containing the manuscript. For journals on EVISE, the Reviewer PDF will indicate the presence and type of data visualization files. You can download the files from the system. For certain types, preview tools are available, allowing you to inspect how files will display on ScienceDirect if the manuscript is accepted.

For other data visualizations, there may be other ways of inspecting the files.
