I just got the reviews for the paper I submitted to IEEE TCSVT and one of the reviewers asked me to provide them with some supplementary results. I am planning the create a website for them so they can go and download the results. Any suggestions on how I can create such a website for my paper?

  • why not just email them? Jul 25 '19 at 17:53
  • The files are High Dynamic Range (HDR) video files which are very large in size.

  • In this case, you can upload it to Youtube as a private video (or setting a password). Then give them the link, such that only they can open it. See support.google.com/youtube/answer/… Jul 25 '19 at 18:21

    @carlosvalderrama When I (with my reviewer hat on) write something like "could the authors provide additional data" I certainly mean "provide to the general audience of your paper, should it be accepted". Jul 28 '19 at 9:33

I think the best option for you might be uploading your files (videos) to

  1. Google Drive, Dropbox. Share your files as links and send to the reviewers. No one else can see these files, and they are very secured.

For sharing your files using Google Drive, check https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2494822?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en

I strongly suggest not to create a website for file downloading, if your are not experienced with website development. It is much complicated for beginners. You need to find (vps, dedicated) servers, then install OS, dependencies, web servers (nginx, apaches) etc., and enable ftp or something else.

So, just upload to a google drive, and share to them.


Please use existing repositories when showing your supplementary data. Department websites die more often than we'd like.

Some options include:

Github Pages is the dead simple, amazing, and (kind of) permanent way. đź‘Ś
