About Sherpa Romeo - v2.sherpa

The policy information provided through this service primarily aims to serve the academic research community. Since the service launched over 15 years ago, publisher policies and the open access sector have changed a lot. Open access policy can be complex and varies according to geographical location, the institution, and the various routes to open access — all of which affects how and where you can publish your research.

Preprints to stop accepting new preprints Sep 30th 2019 – PeerJ Blog

PeerJ Preprints is a free service that launched in April 2013, just two months after publishing began in our more traditional peer-reviewed journal, PeerJ. At the time, there were no dedicated venues for preprints in biology or the life sciences. How quickly has the landscape changed! When we launched preprints, we did wonder at the time if they would make a lasting return (see “Who killed the Preprint, and could it make a return?” Scientific American, April 2013.) At PeerJ Preprints, more than 5,000 preprints have been checked over by staff and published to date.

Where preprints fit alongside peer review at PeerJ We started the PeerJ organization primarily to provide a superior peer-reviewed experience shaped by its Academic Editors. We truly appreciate the thousands of preprint authors who have published in PeerJ Preprints and have helped kickstart preprinting in the wider community. Key Dates. Publons. Endorses COAR/SPARC Good Practice Principles for Scholarly Communication Services - Association of Research Libraries.

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL), through its mission to catalyze the collective efforts of research libraries to enable knowledge creation and to achieve enduring and barrier-free access to information, supports the COAR/SPARC Good Practice Principles for Scholarly Communication Services.

The landscape of tools and infrastructure to support the research enterprise reflects a complex mix of economic models, both commercial and community-owned, both proprietary and open source. With the growing enthusiasm and support in Canadian and US research libraries for academy-owned, community-governed open scholarly communication, these seven principles serve as excellent guideposts for the community as it builds and coordinates components and services for open scholarship.

About the Association of Research Libraries. Open Science MOOC. Home. Open Access. Resources. BMJ Open Science. At BMJ Open Science, we divide our research articles into three types: confirmation studies, exploratory studies, and meta-research.

BMJ Open Science

This distinction values the differences in study designs, threats to validity, and the inferences specific to each research type. Further reading about how we came to these article types is in Kimmelman et al, 2014, PLOS Biology (doi:10.1371/journal.pbio.1001863) and Mogil et al, 2017, Nature (doi:10.1038/542409a). Each article type is described in full below. All research articles must have a clear and justified research question and follow an IMRAD format (Introduction, Methods, Results and Discussion). Please include in your article: Confirmation studies Confirmation studies are hypothesis-testing preclinical research studies. Confirmatory primary research studies have two features: The study must have been pre-registered in a protocol format, a registered report (see below for further details) or in a registry.
