This webinar will provide an overview of the preprint peer review landscape and different preprint peer review services.
The session will introduce preprints, how the preprint landscape has evolved to include peer review and why this is important to researchers, the advancement of science and to the adoption of preprints. Each preprint peer review service will describe their services and unique offerings before opening up to a 30 minute Q&A session moderated by ASAPbio.
The webinar will be chaired by Jonny Coates (ASAPbio). We welcome our panellists: Lesley Anson (Science Colab), Stefano M. Bertozzi (Rapid Reviews), Thomas Guillemaud (Peer Community In), Sara Monaco (Review Commons, EMBO) and Daniela Saderi (PREreview).
