The latest in preprint innovations from, the home of public preprint curation.

What's new?

  • 🧪 Most OSF preprints are now available in the related article functionality provided by Sciety Labs. Check this out on this preprint published on EdArxiv where the top 3 related articles are hosted on EdRxiv, BioRxiv and SSRN respectively. With the 20 OSF related DOI prefixes, that increases the number of OSF preprints that we can recommend from around 80k to more than 150k. It will now also be easier to add other Crossref DOI prefixes that we might want to make available and we will soon add this functionality to the Sciety app.
  • 📈 Published a dashboard to enable CZI to report specifically on biomed preprint evaluation on Sciety.
  • 🚀 Shipped an update to the group information for Access Microbiology.
  • 🕵️ We are making progress with and continue to look into ingesting other OSF preprint servers.
  • 🐛 Fixed a bug that meant papers evaluated by ASAPBio Scielo were not showing associated evaluations.
  • 🐛 Fixed a further regression related to SciELo preprints.
  • 🐛 Fixed a bug so that users don't see random cache collision failures.

What's next?

  • 🕵️ This week we'll be looking at how we pull in more content for the Access Microbiology group

Let us know what you think

We've recently surfaced more preprint activity on Sciety to help alert readers when there are changes in the publication journey of a paper. For example, this BioRxiv article that has seen multiple versions and public reviews and has been published as a Reviewed Preprint. Sciety article pages show the most recent version of the article and we'd like to know more about what's important to readers when they are finding articles to read and saving them for later.

Please fill out our one question survey to share your thoughts.
