Digest submission

To publish a genetic diversity digest, its corresponding author should follow these simple seven steps:

This is a very fast and easy process. Most of the fields in the digest editor are automatically filled in by Demiurge upon submitting the matrix in T4 format, and the names of the populations to geo-reference are also taken by Demiurge from the T4 file, so that authors only have to position each population in the geo-referencer. The digest is then associated with an URL, and the species included in the T4 matrix are automatically linked to available meta-data about them in GBIF, Genbank, Jstor, and the Encyclopedia of Life.

If you decide to stop the process of digest submission, the digest editor will save the changes, and your unsubmitted digest will be available in your next Demiurge session clicking on the "Digest" tab of your user menu. Multiple incomplete digests can be stored in this private part of Demiurge.

Upon successful completion of a short digest review processDemiurge emails all the digest authors an e-certificate of “digest authorship and integrity”, and the reviewers receive an e-certificate acknowledging their scientific collaboration. Subsequently, the digest is published and becomes searchable within Demiurge.

After publication on the web, digests can be managed by their corresponding authors, as their unique Demiurge registration code will allow them to modify any of their text elements (except the genotype matrix), and to add or remove ancillary information.

Being registered in Demiurge is mandatory prior to downloading any digest and/or some of its items. Registration entails the acceptation of the Demiurge's terms of use, which (among other important issues) enforce the correct attribution of the digests in any communication that uses the data they contain.
