Journals Library

Project webpage uploads

The project webpages are an opportunity to provide additional material that serves an archival purpose, that enable easier reproducibility and more transparency. Some examples are listed below. You should submit these documents with your final report on the Management Information System, using the 'Additional Editorial Documentation' file upload type. Please see the Report submission section for more guidance.

For the following material you should use your own judgement on placement depending on your individual report. The editors will also make an assessment of where material should be placed.
