The use of preprints is growing in the life sciences. Preprints help researchers worldwide to accelerate dissemination of research findings to the scientific community, but how exactly can preprints be a vehicle for career advancement? In this webinar, researchers at different career stages and a funder representative will offer insights into the value that preprints hold for researchers, with a particular focus on their benefits for early-career researchers (ECRs). The panelists will offer their perspectives on the impact of preprints on research dissemination, assessment, and recognition. They will also comment on their experience preprinting their own research outputs. This discussion will be particularly beneficial to ECRs who are interested in adopting preprints as a venue for sharing their contributions with their peers. We will encourage questions and comments by the audience to feed the discussion with our speakers.
Topics to be covered during the event:
First things first: Why consider preprinting your research work
High-speed rail: How preprints are a tool for career progression
Throwing the net: Preprints as a means to find and be found
