Virtual panel: Preprints: Past, Pandemic, and Future

Friday, May 29, 2020 10:00am - 11:00am

This panel will introduce attendees to preprints--a mechanism for publishing your manuscript prior to publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Some noted advantages include the ability to increase visibility via a green open access version, rapidly release findings, and solicit feedback. Some scholars are resistant to depositing preprints because of fears of scooping, confusion over journal policies, and reluctance to publish prior to peer review vetting. Preprints are a timely topic as they have been making headlines recently during the Covid-19 pandemic, but broadly preprints are not a new publication type which will be explained more in the panel presentations.
