The Power of Preprints
The Power of Preprints Online
Preprints are scholarly manuscripts that have been posted prior to becoming published articles. With the increased demand to accelerate research, preprints have become a more common part of the publishing process, despite the fact that these drafts have not yet been submitted to a journal nor have they undergone the peer review and editorial process. This workshop will discuss the benefits and concerns to consider when publishing and utilizing preprints. It will also address where to locate preprints involving health sciences research.

Allie Tatarian (they/them) is a data librarian, liaison for the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, and former biologist with over 5 years of wet lab experience.
