Preprints: Accelerating Scholarly Communication
Preprint servers allow authors to share articles that they have written with the academic community before the journal peer review process has been completed. Preprints developed as a response to the often lengthy journal publication process, which can slow down the dissemination of new information. Posting a preprint allows researchers to share their work more quickly with the scholarly community, receive early feedback from their peers, and it can also help increases the visibility of a researcher's work.
At the end of this session, participants should be able to:
· Describe the importance of this type of publishing
· Successfully search the preprint literature in their field
· Discuss considerations for publishing their own work as a preprint
