FSCI courses are now closed. Course attendees must go to the course OSF page do see course materials and Zoom links.


Researchers are becoming increasingly aware of preprints: complete and public drafts of unreviewed scientific documents. Preprint publishing and data archiving in repositories has dramatically increased in recent years due to changing researcher priorities, and requirements set by funders and publishers. This has created a variety of challenges and opportunities as it relates to scholarly inclusion and academic rigor. In this workshop we will cover an overview of preprint-publishing and research-archiving platforms and the various ways researchers can engage with preprints in their field. We will discuss the challenges that come with the rise in preprint publishing and highlight the importance of creating a culture that fosters open scholarly dialogue to make research more transparent, accessible, and inclusive.

Collaborators and guest lecturers: Raquel Aragón, UCLA; Dr. Shawntel Okonkwo, PhD, ZS Associates, Inc.; Dr. Joe Udeochu, PhD, Regeneron.
