Flockademic

Flockademic
A free platform, started in the Netherlands by software engineer Vincent Tunru, enables academics to start their own preprint journal. Academics can use the platform to share early research findings, as well as lab notes, conference posters, data and other work.

Open Preprint Systems

A “preprint” is a research paper that authors have chosen to make freely available online while still in draft form and through multiple versions, with the rise of preprints representing another element in the broader move toward open science.

Open Preprint Systems (OPS) is an open source preprint server for managing the posting of research papers. Authors, after registering with the system and being approved by the Preprint Manager, can share their research as preprints, whether as PDFs, or Word documents. The posted papers are then made freely available online to be downloaded and indexed by Google Scholar.

OPS Features

OPS is built using the same framework as Open Journal Systems (OJS) and so shares the majority of its code base. OPS can be downloaded, for free, by any interested party and installed on a local webserver. Capacities and features of the beta release including the following:

  • Responsive reader front-end with multiple options for content organization
  • Author-led rapid publication workflow
  • Online submission and management of all content
  • Customizable to suit your screening policies, with several options included
  • Integrated with scholarly publishing services such as Crossref and ORCiD
  • Locally installed and controlled
  • Community-led and supported
  • Built-in support for a wide array of features from the OJS and OMP ecosystem
  • Available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, with more languages to come

Preprints

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 Content on Preprints is not peer-reviewed and can receive feedback from readers.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.

PREreview, Post, Read and Engage with preprint reviews

PREreview’s mission is to bring more diversity to scholarly peer review by supporting and empowering community of researchers, particularly those at early stages of their career (ECRs) to review preprints.

PREreview is a new, open-source and free platform designed from the ground up to engage the whole scientific community with collaborative and constructive peer review on preprints.

Some of the key features of the new PREreview platform include the ability for users to sign-in with their ORCID IDs (with optional pseudonymity), solicit preprint feedback, leave comments, and endorse others’ reviews, all in accordance with PREreview’s Code of Conduct.
