ASAPbio newsletter vol 2 – Your help requested for the ASAPbio Funders’ Workshop

Dear ASAPbio subscriber,

Last week, we announced the ASAPbio Funders’ Workshop, a small meeting to be held at NIH on May 24th to coordinate support among private and public funding agencies for preprints in biology. Representatives from existing preprint servers will attend, as will some junior and senior scientists.

To ensure that the voice of the community is well-represented at the workshop, we need as many responses as possible to our new, updated survey on preprint server preferences by May 20th.

Please consider sharing the following announcement with your lab, department, society, social media network, or other interested group:

Help shape the future of preprints with ASAPbio’s 10 minute survey

On May 24th, representatives of major funding agencies and existing preprint servers will convene at the NIH for the ASAPbio Funders’ Workshop. The goal of this meeting is to coordinate efforts to support a preprint service with maximum benefit for the biology community. In order to make informed decisions, the attendees of this meeting need to hear from practicing scientists like you. Please take 10 minutes to complete our updated and expanded survey at ASAPbio.org by May 20th! We’ll raffle off 50 ASAPbio t-shirts to survey participants, but more importantly, the opinions of all respondents will help shape the future of how we communicate results in biology. Please share the survey with your colleagues via email and social media using #ASAPbio.

Best,

ASAPbio organizers
