Reviewing Article Enrichments
Authors can enrich their article with interactive data visualizations and links to data repositories. They can do so by:
- uploading additional files with their manuscript that will be visualized online
- including database accession numbers in their manuscript, which enable data feeds from related databases.
You can therefore expect to find data visualization files with manuscripts you receive for review. Also, they may contain database accession numbers.
Database accession numbers
Authors are asked to include database accession numbers according to the instructions on database linking.
Inspecting data visualization files
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.
Please click the links below to access these tools directly.
- KML/KMZ files for visualizing geospatial data
- CSV files for the Interactive Plot Viewer
- FIG files for the MATLAB Viewer
- CSV files for Data Profile
For other data visualizations, there may be other ways of inspecting the files.
