Thanks for sharing Mary.
Just to clarify that this not the response from /Nature/, but from
/Scientific Data/. Indeed, /Scientific Data/ mainly focuses on Data
Descriptors and Article types focused on specific standards and their
use, and meta-analysis; hence Andrew’s reply.
As usual, much depends on how a piece is pitched in the first place, and
if the format fits in the journal’s scope and article types. Hopefully,
in today’s call we have made some progresses on what to do to next.
Kind regards,
