PREreview: engaging early career researchers in peer review

Although the use of preprints in the life sciences is rapidly increasing, their adoption is still far from being the standard practice in scholarly publishing. At PREreview, we want to facilitate that cultural shift where every scientist posts, reads, and engages with preprints. Furthermore, PREreview seeks to diversify peer review by supporting the community review of preprints and their integration into the traditional peer review process. As early-career researchers (ECRs), we recognized that ECRs are rarely trained in how to contribute to peer review - despite it being a key aspect of every researcher’s life - and even more rarely are they formally invited to engage in editorial peer review. During the talk, I will share our progress in building a community of ECR preprint reviewers, the stakeholders we have engaged to support and expand our mission, and our vision to facilitate the growth of a community that openly exchanges timely, and constructive feedback on emerging scientific outputs. Engagement, openness and collaboration are at the heart of PREreview and have been since day one. We hope to share this message at FORCE2018
