Biophysics Colab is delighted to announce the launch of a full ‘Publish, Review, Curate’ service later this year. In addition to receiving high-quality feedback on published preprints, authors will soon be able to finalise their studies as versions of record.
Creating verified articles from published preprints
The curators at Biophysics Colab consider published preprints describing physicochemical mechanisms underlying physiological processes.
With authors' consent, curators engage diverse teams of reviewers to collaboratively evaluate preprints, then deliver a single, consolidated report back to authors.
Authors can publicly respond to the comments, revise their preprints appropriately, and either seek further advice or finalise their studies. Curators append their evaluations to finalised preprints, endorsing those that are rigorous and robust.
Later this year, we will begin to formally validate finalised preprints as versions of record — curated articles with unique DOIs.
