eLife Moves to a New Preprints-Forward Publishing Model

eLife announced that it will transition from a “review, then publish” to a “publish, then review” model. The eLife journal will exclusively review preprints, and its editors and reviewers will concentrate on creating high-quality peer reviews that will be made public with the preprints. If a paper that eLife sends out for peer review is not already on a preprint server, eLife will post it to bioRxiv or medRxiv. eLife is also going to refocus its editorial processes on developing “refereed preprints” that have a publicly available assessment from the reviewers and editors attached.

eLife notes, “These steps advance eLife’s mission of transforming the communication of new biology and medicine research, and come amid increasing support for preprints within the life science community, including eLife authors. A recent internal analysis showed that around 70% of papers under review at eLife were already available as preprints. The organisation began trialing this system with Preprint Review—an opt-in service for reviewing preprints posted on bioRxiv, which has seen more than 250 papers reviewed since its launch in May.”
