I'm about to submit a manuscript describing a data product. In the manuscript, I will advertise that the data are available for public use under the ODC Attribution license. After submission, I will start the process to transfer the data to the World Data Center for Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere, who would like to see a manuscript before I can transfer my data. But in the manuscript, I hope to have a persistent link, citing the actual data. So, I have a chicken-and-egg problem.
I could solve this by writing in the submitted manuscript a note This will be adapted in the final version. How usual or unusual is it to write such meta-information in a manuscript? Or should I rather not make mention of it in the initial submission, and rather communicate this meta-information to the reviewers via the editor?
