Preprints and PubMed Central
Preprints—scholarly manuscripts posted by the author(s) to openly accessible platforms, usually before peer review—are gaining increased attention as a means for rapid dissemination of scientific research results. NLM is preparing to launch a pilot project to test the viability of making preprints resulting from NIH-funded research available via PubMed Central. Lessons learned from the pilot will inform future NLM efforts with preprints.
In this webinar, Kathryn Funk, the Program Manager for PubMed Central, discussed the current preprint landscape and NIH Preprint Pilot. Participants also shared their thoughts on shaping NLM's approaches to accelerating access to research results through preprints.
