Preprints is a platform dedicated to making early versions of research outputs permanently available and citable. We post original research articles and comprehensive reviews, and papers can be updated by authors at any time. Content on Preprints is not peer-reviewed and can receive feedback from readers.
For authors intending to submit, please read the How it Works and Instruction for Authors pages. The majority of research journals allow authors to post on preprint servers such as Preprints prior to publication (see Preprints and Publishing in Peer-Reviewed Journals.
You can search our preprints using our search page, or check the latest preprints from your field. Log in to set up alerts for the newest preprints, or get involved by screening submitted preprints.
Why post with Preprints.org?
We believe in fast dissemination of research. Our simple, quick process ensures that others can read your work as soon as possible. Preprints has the following features:
Multidisciplinary: We cover all research disciplines, you can see the research categories here.
Open access: All preprints are posted with a Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 license, ensuring that authors retain copyright and receive credit for their work, while allowing anyone to read and reuse their work.
Citation via Crossref DOI: For each preprint, authors can choose to register a unique digital object identifier issued by Crossref. This makes them instantly citable and provides a permanent link to the article, even if the URL on our platform changes. New versions of preprints receive a different DOI.
Comment on any article: Authors can receive public or private feedback from readers directly from the preprint abstract page.
Simple submission process: Submitting a preprint only requires basic information, our team of editors will do the rest and post your preprint as soon as possible.
