The recognition of preprints by publishers has been a significant step in preprints becoming common usage in the life sciences. In more recent years, funding bodies and hiring committees have implemented policies recognising preprints as valid research outputs and as evidence in grant or job applications. We will hear from Hannah Hope (Open research lead, Wellcome Trust) and Needhi Bhalla (Professor, UCSC) about how funders are recognising preprints in research and researcher assessment and why this is such an important step for equity and diversity efforts.
