Your PRO-I review
I am writing regarding my review of the manuscript XXX.
As a signatory of the Peer Reviewers’ Openness Initiative (PRO-I; http://opennessinitiative.org/), I have committed to only provide comprehensive manuscript reviews when authors make data and research materials publicly available, or justify in the manuscript why this is not possible. This is because I believe that openness and transparency are core values of science, and minimal quality requirements of a scientific manuscript. I have evaluated whether this manuscript meets the open standards defined by PRO-I and include a report of my findings below.
In brief, I have found that the manuscript does not meet the PRO-I criteria and I will not be proceeding with a comprehensive review for the time being. I would be happy to review a revision of the manuscript that meets the criteria indicated in my report below, or provides a public justification in the manuscript as to why this is not possible. Please could you forward my request to the authors? Authors wishing to improve the openness and transparency of their work can find detailed practical resources on the PRO-I website (https://opennessinitiative.org/guidelines-for-authors/).
In brief, I pleased to say that this paper meets the PRO-I criteria, and my comprehensive review follows the PRO-I report.
When the manuscript meets a standard, I have indicated this with a '✓' symbol. If the manuscript does not meet a standard, or when it was not possible to ascertain whether a standard has been met, this is indicated with a 'x' symbol. Finally, if the authors have provided an explanation as to why adherence to open standards was not possible in this case, this is indicated with an 'R' symbol.
