Slides from “Quality and reliability of preprints"
Description: Preprints have been growing in popularity and visibility across many disciplines and communities — all the more so during the COVID19 pandemic, with rapid publication of early research on everything from vaccine development to economic impacts. While preprints have been widely adopted in some disciplines, there are still concerns about their quality and reliability, especially when they can be readily accessed by policy-makers and the public who may not yet fully understand their limitiations. This session brings together three experts — from Africa, Latin America, and the US — to discuss the challenges and opportunities of preprints for researchers and non-researchers alike.
