New Preprint server

Is preprint here to stay? And will it decrease the burden of reviewing?

We’ve seen Peerage of Science, F1000 research and PeerJ. And here’s the next preprint server, for biological manuscripts only, BioRxiv, which you can read more about on Science Insider:

A problem might be that the journal targeted for final submission might not allow submissions of manuscripts that have already been shared online.

We are happy to announce that Oikos welcomes submissions of manuscripts that have been “published” on those preprint servers.

Here is a list of journal policies in the matter:

So will you share your next manuscript online to get comments during the writing process?

  1. Has anyone done the legwork to identify which ecological journals (other than the lovely Oikos!) accept preprinted submissions?
