Thank you for joining us for the last weeknote of 2023!

What’s new at PREreview?

This week we are getting a few PREreview Clubs pages ready ahead of the new year and we’re continuing to build out our next ORCID integration so that can write users’ review history to the peer review sections of their ORCID profiles. We hope to launch the feature in January for anyone who’d like to opt-in.

What’s next?

Next year is another ambitious year for the PREreview platform! In the first few months of 2024, we hope to tackle:

  • Our search (and perhaps recommendation) overhaul.
  • Localization and translation work for Portuguese and Spanish.
  • An automated process for adding additional authors to collaborative reviews.
  • Further COAR Notify integrations.
  • A discovery process for optimizing more of the site for different audiences.
