Preprints in the Scholarly Ecosystem– Panel Discussion

Many scholars are uncertain about or unaware of preprint servers like bioRxiv; however, their popularity is increasing and they are accepted for submission by an increasing number of high impact journals (e.g. the JCI: Journal of Clinical Investigation, currently housed at Johns Hopkins). Preprints have the potential to simplify/standardize some aspects of submission, and address growing concerns about timely dissemination of knowledge.

On Wednesday, May 1 in Sheldon Hall of the Bloomberg School of Public Health, a panel of scholars including Arturo Casadevall (JCI Deputy Editor) will discuss the innovations and its implications of preprints in the scholarly ecosystem.
