Submitting your findings for publication can be one of the most stressful stages in the research lifecycle. Often, this is because the submission process requires you to manage several logistical tasks beyond the actual paper-writing. For example, more and more journals require a link to a repository where reviewers can explore your data as they comb through your manuscript. However, you might not be ready to share your data with the world until the paper has passed this review.
To ease this process, we’ve created a way to grant reviewers anonymous access to your SCP study while it is still private. Once you’ve activated access for reviewers, SCP will generate a unique URL and PIN, which your reviewers can use to visualize and explore your data (but not download it). You can also control when this access expires, or reset the access information at any time (for instance, if new reviewers are assigned to your manuscript). As always, nobody else will be able to access your data until you make the study public.
With this feature, we hope to reduce the number of logistical tasks that you have to juggle when submitting a manuscript, so that you can focus on communicating your science instead.
