Preprints and Publishing in the Life and Biomedical Sciences

Preprints have been on the rise in the biosciences since 2013, significantly bolstered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Preprints and Publishing in the Life and Biomedical Sciences

Prperints are seeing ever increasing usage by academics, policy makers and journalists in addition to the general public. However, even within academic circles there is a significant gap in the education, training and awareness of preprints. To remedy this, a group of ASAPbio fellows have created a 4-lesson course on preprints, the traditional journal-dependent publication process, and the future of academic publishing.

These lessons include: Lesson I: Introduction to the evolving publishing landscape. Lesson II: Understanding and engaging with preprints. Lesson III: The editorial process and peer review. Lesson IV: The communicating scientist: How to effectively and responsibly communicate scientific research.
