Biophysics Colab Starts Reviewing Preprints on Sciety

Biophysics Colab joined Sciety to bring review and curation to biophysical preprints on the Sciety platform. Sciety notes, “Biophysics Colab is a collaboration of biophysicists working in partnership with eLife to improve the way in which original research is evaluated. It aims to drive forward the principles of open science by providing an environment for peer review that is equitable, inclusive and transparent.”

Sciety facilitates Biophysics Colab’s efforts to “identify preprints of interest, provide constructive and collegiate feedback to the authors, and publicly endorse studies that they consider to be rigorous and robust,” says Lesley Anson, executive director of Science Colab, Biophysics Colab’s parent organization. Authors can choose to respond publicly to feedback via Sciety, which is posted alongside the peer reviews. Authors are also allowed to post revised versions of their preprints. Biophysics Colab’s endorsements are viewable on Sciety’s activity pages.
