Recommendation
Image for PLOS  PLOS
PLOS has identified a set of established repositories and data standards, which are recognized and trusted within their respective communities, for their journals PLOS Biology, PLOS Medicine, PLOS ONE, PLOS Genetics, PLOS Computational Biology, PLOS Pathogens, and PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases. PLOS requires that authors comply with field-specific standards for preparation and recording of data and select repositories appropriate to their field, for example deposition of microarray data in ArrayExpress or GEO; deposition of gene sequences in GenBank, EMBL or DDBJ; and deposition of ecological data in Dryad. Authors are encouraged to select repositories that meet accepted criteria as trustworthy digital repositories.
