Preprint discovery 101: Tips & tricks for authors and readers


Preprints - research articles that are publicly posted before undergoing formal peer review - provide a rapid means to share research results. In this webinar we will demonstrate how to follow hot-off-the press research by incorporating preprints in your literature search routine using discovery tools developed by Europe PMC. We will also share some useful tips for those of you posting preprints, including how to claim a preprint to your ORCID or check if your preprint has been cited, reviewed or recommended by others.

To learn more about using Europe PMC in your research try our Europe PMC: Quick tour or our webinar Effective Literature Research with Europe PMC.
