JOR/ORS Workshop on Preprint Servers: Public Access and Peer-Review

Saturday, February 8
1:30 PM – 3:00 PM

Preprint servers are places where manuscripts and data can be made public on the internet. These sites are not peer-reviewed, but often stimulate discussion of the posted studies. This workshop will analyze the pro and cons of using preprint servers, review the policies of publishers and journals, and invite a lively discussion on the role of this new public access to data.
