A Researcher’s Guide to Preprints—Importance & Benefits to Authors

세미나 소개

The adoption of the open access (OA) movement has seen a significant increase over the last few years. This is in part due to the launch of key OA mandates and the rise of different avenues for disseminating research freely. One of the main factors driving free and immediate access to cutting-edge research is preprint repositories. Enago in collaboration with The Company of Biologists, a not-for-profit publisher supporting and inspiring the biology community, conducted an insightful webinar to help research scholars enhance their understanding of preprint servers. It also provided insights on how preprints can aid in bridging the gaps in academic publishing and help accelerate scholarly communication.

After this webinar, researchers will have a better understanding of the following:

  • History of Preprints
  • Benefits of Preprints
  • Preprint Policies Among Journals and Funders
  • Preprints and Scholarly Communication
  • Preprints and the Question of Peer Review
  • Future of Preprints
  • Introduction to preLights—a preprint highlighting service promoting interactions among researchers
