Data Archiving Policy

Data Archiving Policy

As a condition of publication in M-JIS, authors must archive all primary data and relevant, non-proprietary computer code in a permanent, secure, public depository that issues a persistent identifier such as a DOI or accession number. If the study uses data from the published literature or public sources, all compiled datasets analyzed must be included in the archive. All analyses reported in an article must be repeatable using the archived data and code. Articles will proceed to publication only when data have been archived and a DOI or accession number provided and approved.

M-JIS promote ethical re-use of data. Original data sources must be cited. We recommend that authors who re-use published data seek to collaborate with the original data providers when appropriate.

Once an article has been published in M-JIS, the editors and editorial board strongly encourage authors to archive the original article text (pdfs from journal web site/archive) in publicly available and permanent repositories whenever possible and appropriate. The Journal makes no recommendation or suggestion as to which repositories are most appropriate but encourages authors to identify those which best meet their needs as well as the needs of those who will be accessing the data.

All the high level data and full texts of the articles published in M-JIS are stored in XML and .pdf formats in a third party cloud server that is closed to access.


Personal Data Protection

Personal information like names and e-mail addresses submitted to the M-JIS journal management system will be used exclusively for this journal and scientific aims. Such information will not be used for other purposes and will not be shared with third parties. M-JIS guarantees that no personal data will be shared with third party persons or institutions. The personal information which is already shared with M-JIS for academic purposes is protected by the article track system that M-JIS uses against any unwanted access.
