Long version of checklist

  • MG affiliation and Corresponding author
  • Funding
    • remember to add funding acknowledgments with precise grant numbers, so the paper goes into PMC (see below)
    • Discuss with MG the grant for the page/reprint charges (usually but not necessarily the same as the PMC)
  • Tools & Resources
    • Software from the paper should be listed on the lab tools page ( & in the lab github (
    • Make sure there exists a minimal and maximally durable distribution of code and key data as a simple tarball
    • Make sure you software links the permissions statement & has a license (MIT)
    • Make sure you have a final URL for website/github materials from above and enter it into the papers page
    • Make sure you use long-term email addresses for software contacts and a link to the lab FAQ
    • Make sure you have proper, long-term links for all files (, no dropbox or personal homepage links)
    • You can use the "website" field on the papers page to link your github site.
  • PMC & preprints
    • make sure journal publishes in PubMed Central (send email to editor to confirm this)
    • Do a biorxiv submission (or another equiv. preprint server)
    • use pi at for bioxriv submission
      • Link this from the papers page
      • Update bioRxiv preprint when the paper is published (wait 2-3 weeks before contacting bioRxiv - bioRxiv should automatically link it ).
  • Tweet
    • Tweet a ~200 char tweet on the paper and mention MG (@MarkGerstein), including bits of the title; you can include an image too. He will retweet.
    • You can use the lab twitter (@GersteinLab)
    • Some recent examples:
  • Wikipedia
    • Try to link your paper to a relevant article on Wikipedia and edit that entry as appropriate
