Some journals now provide a separate section in articles for the data access statement. Where no such section exists, we suggest that you include the data access statement with the acknowledgement of funder support.
The data access statement should be included in submitted manuscripts, even if identifiers have not yet been issued. The statement should be updated to include any persistent identifiers or accession numbers as they become available, typically when the manuscript is accepted for publication.
A formal data citation, idelly following the Force 11 data citation principles, can also be included either with the main references or in a specified data citation section. Most research data repositories will provide a citation recommendation that you can use.
