Preprints: we're supporting calls for a Central Service
This is a blog item, published by Welcome, which is about a new initiative that allows researchers to cite preprints in their grant applications. Central Service for Preprints allows researchers to deposit their preprints – complete and public drafts of scientific documents, not yet certified by peer review – to:
- ensure their findings are quickly and widely disseminated
- establish priority of their discoveries
- invite feedback and discussion to help improve the work.
