Refereed Preprints

Preprints are rapidly changing the scholarly communication landscape by accelerating dissemination and enabling auxiliary innovations. For example, several new initiatives have begun to enrich preprints with expert commentary. Some focus on adding formal reviewer reports to generate refereed preprints, which can provide context for readers, accelerate and inform editorial decisions at journals, reduce the peer review bottleneck, and help evaluators understand the impact and quality of a new manuscript. Join us for a panel featuring experts with first-hand experience in the production of this commentary. We'll explore questions such as: -What are author, reader, and reviewer reactions to refereed preprints? -Will they help publishing become more efficient or duplicate effort? -What will be the impact of refereed preprints on journals?
