"Monkeypox is a public health emergency both globally and here in the United States. As part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s response to this global health threat, the White Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) coordinated an international effort to make research results and data related to monkeypox immediately available to the public....Important contributions to the scientific knowledge-base are produced by researchers across the world. Scholars everywhere can amplify their cutting-edge research for feedback ahead of publishing through the submission of their manuscripts to pre-print repositories. These repositories provide researchers with the ability to share their work for early feedback with a wide audience, often before formal peer-review. • Freely accessible online pre-print repositories are available for specific research fields, such bioRxiv for biology and SocArXiv for sociology, as well as for multiple research fields, such as AfricArXiv for all research originating in African countries and arXiv for quantitative biology, physics, computer science, statistics, electrical engineering, and the social sciences. • Accelerating Science and Publication in Biology (ASAPbio) has put together a comprehensive, easily searchable, database of pre-print repositories for public use. • To learn more about pre-prints, the National Library of Medicine has developed a free online course. Together, these efforts by the scholarly publishing community will accelerate scientific discovery and ultimately save lives."
