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.
