What are preprints?
What advantages does a preprint have?
Where can I submit my preprint?
There are many different repositories for preprints, many of which are subject specific such as:
bioRxiv: the preprint server for biology: https://www.biorxiv.org/
PeerJ Preprints: for biological sciences, health sciences, medical sciences: https://peerj.com/about/preprints/what-is-a-preprint/
psyRxiv for psychological sciences: https://psyarxiv.com/
MedRxiv for medical and health sciences coming soon!: http://yoda.yale.edu/medrxiv
SSRN: many disciplines: https://www.ssrn.com/en/
Open Science Framework (OSF): any discipline: https://osf.io/preprints/
PRO TIP: Ask the editor of the journal you intend to submit to what that journal's policy is on preprints. Some journals may regrads a preprint as a prior publication and then your manuscript may not be eligible for submission.
