ASAPbio Meeting: The Evolving Preprint Ecosystem

July 19, 2017 @ 10:30 am - 5:30 pm EDT

More information here.

This meeting will be held at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in Cambridge, MA on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 from 10:30am – 5:30pm EDT. It will be live-streamed.

The preprint ecosystem is growing rapidly. The CZI/bioRxiv partnership will fuel the expansion of the leading preprint server in the life sciences. Many other servers and platforms exist or are planned, with varying degrees of disciplinary overlap (arXiv, PeerJ Preprints,, OSF Preprints, ChemRxiv, SSRN, SciELO, PsyArxiv, EngArXiv, SocArXiv, Authorea, F1000Research, etc). Funding agencies are enacting policies supporting preprints, such as those developed by the Wellcome Trust and the Medical Research Council, while agencies like the NIH have gone a step further and developed guidelines for selecting a preprint server. Furthermore, the integration of preprints into the research culture will open doors for the publication of other types of interim research products such as theses, hypotheses, protocols, single-figure publications, data papers, software papers, etc.

The goal of this meeting is to identify any gaps/opportunities in the preprint ecosystem, which in turn will help to inform the revision of ASAPbio’s plans before the close of our RFA suspension.
