PrePubMed: a PubMed for preprints

Preprints are becoming a common way to share and communicate research results that have not been peer reviewed yet. The importance of this alternative to the traditional publishing timing is getting attention by all relevant stakeholders of research. A sign of this is the fact that some organisms are announcing that they will accept preprints in grant applications or the fact that a preprint recently became the final paper.

Given this, PrePubMed was born, a PubMed for preprints as its own creator claims, to index preprints from arXiv q-bio, PeerJ Preprints, bioRxiv, F1000Research, preprints.org, The Winnower, Nature Precedings, and Wellcome Open Research.
