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 results. There are also new types of peer review available that offer different levels of confidentiality and transparency to authors, reviewers and readers.

In this course you will learn about traditional publishing methods as well as these innovative new models. We will discuss the benefits and disadvantages of the different models and all the practical steps that you need to consider before posting a preprint or submitting to an open, transparent or post-publication peer review journal.
