The CODECHECK principles can be implemented in different ways. A detailed description of a generic workflow (see Figure 2 below), a discussion of alternatives across a number of dimensions (who does the check when and with what openness and importance - see Figure 3 below), and a review of the different involved stakeholders and roles can be found in the CODECHECK paper at F1000Research.

One specific workflow is the CODECHECK community workflow, which is used by the CODECHECK team to conduct checks for preprints or submitted manuscripts independent from journal collaborations.
