We’re back with this week’s update from PREreview.org!
What’s new at PREreview?
Work on PREreviewers’ profiles continues; we’ve released new profile options that will better help researchers connect with one another and PREreview clubs on the site. Check them out on the “My details” page of PREreview.org the next time you log into the site!
We’ve had several more onboarding chats for PREreview Clubs, as well. PREreview Clubs are collaborative preprint reviewing groups around a shared affiliation, affinity, interest, location, language, or any other common cause. They’re great opportunities for students, colleagues, and lab teammates to contribute peer preprint reviews together.
We’re also monitoring how people are using our brand new Structured PREreviews. Structured PREreviews help PREreviewers jumpstart their work with community-tested prompts and new comment fields that allow PREreviewers to quickly assess a preprint and while providing further context and explanation for authors wondering how best to improve their work.
We’re getting ready for a PREreview all-hands meeting later in October and budgeting in lots of time to figure out the best next steps for overhauling discovery and search on PREreview.org. In the meantime, we’ll continue advancing our Profiles work and work on the PREreview.org onboarding workflow.
