Our Editorial Board members will play a crucial role in Scientific Data’s editorial process. Board members will help determine which works are sent out for peer-review, select appropriate peer referees, and will recommend a decision for each submission, based on the referees’ reports and our editorial guidelines. You can find out more about our criteria for publication by visiting our editorial and publishing policies page.
