[Free eBook] Scholastica & Authorea announce OA + Preprints: Journals and scholars take action

In honor of Open Access Week 2016,Scholastica and Authorea announce a new free-to-download eBook: Open Access + Preprints: Journals and scholars take action

In recent years preprint servers, or online databases of manuscripts posted by scholars prior to formal publication, have been growing in popularity resulting in preprints for nearly all disciplines. This eBook overviews how preprint servers are both reshaping the research experience and contributing to new journal publishing models.

We explore:

  • New ways researchers are collaborating and publishing research via preprints
  • Steps journals can take to help researchers use preprints for Green OA archiving 
  • Questions surrounding the use of preprints
  • Journals using preprint publishing models to make research free to read and free to publish

The eBook is full of insights to help you navigate the evolving role of preprints in the scholarly communication landscape. We hope you find it useful and invite you to share it!
