acavaminombre's bookmarks 2018-06-19
"The rapid development and impact of preprints has become a focus for work by Knowledge Exchange as part of our interest in Open Access and Open Scholarship.
As a first outcome, the KE Task & Finish group on preprints issued a public document ‘The evolving preprint landscape'. This introductory report, authored by Jon Tennant with contributions from a number of experts, provides a brief history of preprints, definitions (preprints, post-prints, version of record. e-Print) and describes the purpose and the current state of preprints in the research landscape. Chapters are dedicated to policy developments and possible future trends and describe gaps in the present system, stakeholders groups and business models."
