A Brief Guide to Preprints

A short guide explaining what preprints are and how you can use them.

Preprint Servers

Preprint servers provide a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) to enable you to link to your work and version controls to curate the different versions as you make changes to your manuscript.  Preprint servers in the area of medicine and healthcare are medRxiv and bioRxiv. There is a longer list of preprint servers on Wikipedia.
