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, including the benefits to authors and all the practical things you need to know to post a preprint and submit to an open, transparent or post-publication peer review journal.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this workshop, you will be better able to:

  • Recognise the key arguments for preprints and open peer review in research
  • Interpret how these principles or policies may apply in your research field
  • Identify the practical steps and implications of preprints and open peer review for authors
  • Assess preprints and open peer review in the context of changing UK research culture values
