Pre-prints and journal clubs: empowering the next generation of peers

— In this blog post, Samantha Hindle and Daniela Saderi describe PREreview — a resource they built to facilitate collaborative review of preprints. Their motivation is that by bringing preprints, journal clubs and open peer review under the same roof, PREreview would benefit authors who would get the feedback, and help involve more (and early career) scientists in the evaluation of science. This article was originally published on the eLife Labs blog on Oct 25, 2017 under a Creative Commons license. It is reproduced in full here and is meant to be an introduction to the topic of the presentation Dr. Daniela Saderi will give at EPFL on Thursday 21 March at 17:15. More information and registration to the event is available on the memento page.
