To drive our mission to raise awareness of preprints and encourage their productive use in the life sciences, We work closely with the ASAPbio Community, a group of researchers and others involved in research communication who interact and exchange information and feedback around the use of preprints.

We are keen to support those with an interest in learning more about preprints and in developing skills to equip you in becoming a resource for your community. With this in mind we developed the ASAPbio Fellow program – a six-month program structured to provide participants with the tools and skills they need to drive discussions about the productive use of preprints in the life sciences, and to become ASAPbio representatives at their institutions or scientific conferences. The program involves a number of activities including:

  • Sign up for ASAPbio newsletter and ASAPbio Slack channel
  • Monthly webinars covering updates about preprints in the life sciences and the development of communication skills 
  • Participation in activities such as blog posts or developing preprint-related resources

You can find more information about the program on the ASAPbio Fellow program Handbook. The current cohort of the ASAPbio Fellow program is running and the program is closed for applications, we will be posting updates about the current and future cohorts here. If you have any questions about the program or how to apply, please contact Iratxe at

Fellows are also ASAPbio Community members. More information about the activities for the broader community and how to join the ASAPbio Community are available here.

We look forward to working with you! We always welcome ideas and feedback, if you have any queries or comments about the ASAPbio Community or the ASAPbio Fellow program please do get in touch by emailing Iratxe at
