A peer review access password/link is the most requested feature for CaltechDATA.  Our development partner is working on implementing the feature, but we do not have a schedule for when it will be available.  

For now, we recommend submitting the files to CaltechDATA with an embargo.  This will generate a permanent DOI link that you can include in the paper text or references.  The reviewers will be able to follow the DOI and see that the files have been uploaded, but they will not be able to download the files.  You should upload the files to a sharing service like, where you can generate a link (or password) that you can provide the reviewers so they can access all the files.
