Preprint peer review on ScienceOpen

Preprint peer review on ScienceOpen

A group of industry thought leaders led by ASAPbio recently published a Consensus View on open preprint peer review practices, Recommendations for accelerating open preprint peer review to improve the culture of science. The authors, including ScienceOpen CEO Stephanie Dawson, explore how the growing prevalence of preprints offers an opportunity to reimagine peer review, fostering a culture of more comprehensive and collaborative evaluation processes. Open preprint peer review can enhance accessibility, benefit early career researchers, and streamline evaluation, reducing delays. The authors also address some of the challenges associated with evaluating preprints, and present recommendations for transparent and equitable preprint peer review.

The International Day of Human Space Flight is observed annually on April 12th and commemorates the first human space flight by Soviet Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin. This day celebrates the remarkable achievements of human space exploration, emphasizes the vital role of space science and technology in fostering innovation, as well as reaffirms the importance of utilizing outer space for peaceful endeavours and for addressing global challenges on Earth. 

In anticipation of the International Day of Human Space Flight, we wanted to highlight some of the space research available on the ScienceOpen platform.
