The latest in preprint innovations from sciety.org, the home of public preprint evaluation.

What's new?

  • 🚀 Sciety's related articles feature now supports more preprint servers. You can explore a wealth of scientific research with access to over 150k OSF preprints across various OSF preprint servers such as MetaArXiv, EarthArXiv, EcoEvoRxiv and engrXiv. You can see examples of those in the related articles section of:
  • 10.31222/osf.io/cgvzp (MetaArXiv)
  • 10.31223/x5hd6g (EarthArXiv)
  • 10.32942/x2tk66 (EcoEvoRxiv)
  • 10.31224/3577 (engrXiv)

    This is beneficial as Sciety is now surfacing work in fields adjacent to and beyond Life Sciences where preprint evaluation is taking place. Related articles can also be used by reviewing groups to help decide what they might evaluate next.
  • 🚀 Sciety is now supporting images for lists, adding more visual identity to curation activity that is happening across the platform. Currently this is enabled for the Endorsed By Gigabyte list, curated by Scott C Edmunds, but we will be enabling it for other user lists in the near future.

  • 🐛 We fixed a bug in the edit list descriptions form.
  • 🐛 We fixed a bug that means ScieELO preprints now show a populated section rather than an empty heading.

What's next?

  • Continued work to visually promote lists and individual curators
  • Exploring the addition on another group reviewing Cell Biology preprints
