Note:

a

A data availability statement confirms the presence or absence of shared data.

b

Links to data in data availability statements are checked to ensure they link to the data that the authors intended. If data have been stored in a data repository, the data availability statement includes a permanent link to the data. Shared data are also cited.

c

Quality and/or replicability of linked data are peer reviewed. Depending on the journal, this may be to peer review the quality of the data by ensuring that the results in the paper and the data in the repository align (for example, sample sizes and variables match), or it may be to peer review the replicability of the data to ensure that the claims presented in the journal article are valid and can be reproduced.
