We’re thrilled to support discussion and feedback to 21 exciting proposals at the Kickoff of the #PreprintSprint on Friday, November 13! At this event, project leads will share their ideas for how to encourage more feedback on preprints, and they will also share what input and resources they need to do that.
We hope that the ensuing breakout sessions will not only provide feedback on projects, but also connect project leads to potential collaborators. Whether you’re a researcher who can help beta test, a developer with experience building tools, or a publisher or preprint server, there are projects looking for your help.
Please note that we’ve extrapolated these suggestions based on the submitted project descriptions, so this should not be viewed as an exhaustive list. For a better sense of what projects need, please register to join the Kickoff. Until then, continue reading to discover some projects that might need your help!
At the bottom of every project proposal, you’ll find a section called “What’s needed for success.” Based on that, here’s a list of projects looking for:
Machine learning experts
|Early Evidence Base: aggregating, mining and rendering preprint reviews.|
|Towards principled metrics of scientific influence with automatic curation of preprints|
Preprint review service or project
Societies or institutions
|bims: Biomed News|
|Piloting peer review overlay services on a distributed network of preprint servers and repositories|
|Preprint review and curation by content type|
