Our traditional publication system keeps new research hidden from public view long after it is ready to be evaluated by our peers. This has adverse consequences not only for individual careers, but also for the overall speed of scientific communication and discovery.

Preprints, or manuscripts posted online before the completion of journal-organized peer review, offer a solution to this problem. In this interactive discussion, we will address the benefits of preprinting, concerns and challenges surrounding their use, and new developments – including rapidly changing funder and journal policies.
