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.
Join Kathryn Funk, the Program Manager for PubMed Central, on May 8 at 11:30 EDT to learn about the current preprint landscape and NIH Preprint Pilot and to contribute your thoughts to shaping NLM’s approaches to accelerating access to research results through preprints.
Date and time: Friday, May 8, 2020, 11:30AM-1:00PM EDT
