Research publishing models are changing. Authors are increasingly choosing to share preprints ahead of the sometimes lengthy wait for journal publication, and funders are responding with new preprint policies for immediate access to research outputs. New types of peer review offer different levels of transparency to authors, reviewers and readers.

In this course, you will learn about traditional publishing methods and innovative new models. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the different models and the practical steps you need to take before posting a preprint or submitting to an open or post-publication peer review journal. We will discuss how you can use preprints responsibly and explore the context of Open Research.

  • Recognise different models of peer review and preprints
  • Recognise the new peer review and preprint policies used by research funders in assessment
  • Identify the practical  implications of submitting a preprint or using open peer review models
  • Judge how preprints and open peer review may benefit your research
