What is Open Science?

Preprint servers

Preprint servers support Open Science by allowing researchers to share their work publicly before undergoing peer review. Research findings are disseminated more rapidly, encouraging collaboration and feedback from other researchers. Researchers can establish priority for their work and receive credit for their contributions, avoiding the delays associated with the traditional publishing process.

Preprints have become an increasingly important component of the Open Science landscape, helping to foster transparency, openness, and innovation in research. 

IntechOpen recognizes the value of preprints and has introduced policies that support authors’ use of preprints. Deepen your knowledge about preprints and how they support researchers and authors in today’s academia via our webinar on preprints from our webinar series “Engaging with Open Science” here.
