Analytics India: Top preprint servers for publishing your AI research

Analytics India: Top preprint servers for publishing your AI research . “Preprint servers are open access online archives or repositories that contain research papers before their peer review and publication. Their main aim is to accelerate the dissemination process of research findings and enhance their visibility. As the peer review process takes time and there is a subsequent delay in publication, preprint servers are useful tools for researchers to post a full draft of their research papers and get immediate feedback from their colleagues. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular preprint servers in AI research.”

PR Newswire: IEEE Introduces TechRxiv™, a New Preprint Server for Unpublished Research (PRESS RELEASE)

PR Newswire: IEEE Introduces TechRxiv™, a New Preprint Server for Unpublished Research (PRESS RELEASE). “IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, announces the launch of TechRxiv.org, a preprint server for the global technology community. TechRxiv.org is a collaborative multidisciplinary hub that will facilitate the open dissemination of scientific findings in electrical engineering, computer science and related technologies.”

ASAPbio: Launching Transpose, a database of journal policies on preprinting & peer review

ASAPbio: Launching Transpose, a database of journal policies on preprinting & peer review. “Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of Transpose (@TransposeSCI), a database of journal peer review, co-reviewing, and preprint policies relating to media coverage, licensing, versions, and citation. These policies can often be difficult to find, unclear, or undefined. Our hope is to bring them to light so that authors, readers, reviewers, and other stakeholders can more easily find journals that align with their values. At the same time, editors can use this resource to draw inspiration from changing practices at other journals.”

Techdirt: Research Shows That Published Versions Of Papers In Costly Academic Titles Add Almost Nothing To The Freely-Available Preprints They Are Based On

Techdirt: Research Shows That Published Versions Of Papers In Costly Academic Titles Add Almost Nothing To The Freely-Available Preprints They Are Based On. “Academic publishers justify their high prices and fat profit margins by claiming that they ‘add value’ as papers progress through the publication process. Although many have wondered whether that is really true — does a bit of sub-editing and design really justify the ever-rising subscription costs? — hard evidence has been lacking that could be used to challenge the publishers’ narrative. A paper from researchers at the University of California and Los Alamos Laboratory is particularly relevant here. It appeared first on arXiv.org in 2016 (pdf), but has only just been ‘officially’ published (paywall). It does something really obvious but also extremely valuable: it takes around 12,000 academic papers as they were originally released in their preprint form, and compares them in detail with the final version […]

Scholarly Kitchen: Elsevier Acquires bepress

Scholarly Kitchen: Elsevier Acquires bepress. Today, Elsevier announces its acquisition of bepress. In a move entirely consistent with its strategy to pivot beyond content licensing to preprints, analytics, workflow, and decision-support, Elsevier is now a major if not the foremost single player in the institutional repository landscape. If successful, and there are some risks, this acquisition will position Elsevier as an increasingly dominant player in preprints, continuing its march to adopt and coopt open access.”

Science: BioRxiv preprint server gets funding from Chan Zuckerberg Initiative

Science: BioRxiv preprint server gets funding from Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. “BioRxiv, the free online archive of draft biology papers, is getting a major funding boost. Today, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) announced that it is putting an undisclosed amount of money into expanding the preprint server and adding more software tools through a collaboration with bioRxiv’s founder, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) in New York.”
