Share your workspace or methods with reviewers:
To facilitate the examination of your data by reviewers, the workspace(s) and method(s) can be listed as separate entries as shown below. Share the method and workspace with the reviewer’s FireCloud accounts in order for them to access. Once you are ready to publicize the method to the community, set the permission to “publicly readable.” You can also think about featuring your workspace to make it easy for others to reproduce your analysis.
