PREreview and eLife have announced that the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) has awarded a grant to non-profit organizations for boosting their efforts to enable more diverse communities of researchers to participate in the open peer review of preprints.
PREreview and eLife are currently working to enhance PREreview’s integration into Sciety – a website developed by a team within eLife for users to explore and curate evaluated preprints and to open up new opportunities for more researchers to participate in public preprint review.
With backing from CZI, the organizations are in a strong position to achieve two key goals over the next two years. The first is to develop PREreview’s software and engagement strategies to allow new communities to solicit and create expert feedback on preprints. The second is to help enable reviewing organizations and societies to implement their flavors of the 'publish, review, curate' model that PREreview and Sciety are showcasing, by building systems that facilitate and display expert reviews and curated lists.Click here to read the original press release.
