PRBB researchers talk about preprints on Open Access Week

News from the PRBB

As every year, the end of October celebrates the Open Access Week.

From the PRBB #ellipse, we talk to different stakeholders of the scientific community (researchers, press officers, librarians) about the best way to increase accessibility to research results. From a critical look at the current research publication system, its problems and potential solutions, we focus specifically on preprints – a way of sharing scientific results before their peer review and their official publication in a scientific journal.

Check out the ellipse article to find out the opinions of:

  • Richard Sever, Assistant Director of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press and Co-Founder of bioRxiv & medRxiv
