Preprints are drafts of research articles that authors typically share with the wider community for feedback before submitting their final version to a journal and formal peer-review. Preprints allow researchers to share their results in very few days, and reach global audience with no charge for authors or readers. Preprints provide an early forum for discussion and allow authors to get informal feedback on their article prior to submitting an improved version to a journal for peer review.
The new and enhanced platform, which is hosted and managed by CABI, aims to benefit from the organisation’s greater global reach and sustainability. It draws on CABI’s extensive expertise in agricultural data, information and knowledge dissemination. agriRxiv will benefit from the technical and content management infrastructure used to deliver CABI’s subscription products, like CAB Abstracts – the leading English-language bibliographic information service providing access to the world’s applied life sciences literature, which has almost 10 million records.
Being able to submit preprints, users will, over time, be able to search and filter records with far more precision, and stay abreast of all the latest submissions, news and updates from the agriRxiv platform.
