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Preprints are becoming a common way to share and communicate research results that have not been peer reviewed yet.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.

If you are curious or want to know more about preprints, here you have Ten simple rules for considering preprints.

Science Code Manifesto

The Science Code Manifesto, wrote by Nick Barnes for the Climate Code Foundation a few years ago, defends that software is an increasingly important part of the scientific method nowadays and, as other scientific resources, it must be also publicly available.

As the manifesto states, «Software is a cornerstone of science. Without software, twenty-first century science would be impossible. Without better software, science cannot progress. But the culture and institutions of science have not yet adjusted to this reality.». It aims to reform them to address this challenge by adopting five principles: Code, Copyright, Citation, Credit and Curation. A deeper discussion on these five principles is available here.

Postdoctoral funding schemes in Europe report 2016

The Science Europe association has just published its Postdoctoral Funding Schemes in Europe Survey Report.

The report gives a mapping of support opportunities for postdoctoral researchers, or ‘postdocs’, to improve understanding of what funders do to support researchers’ careers after the completion of their PhD, and to learn whether existing funding schemes can be improved in terms of career support.

This report is a valuable source of information for researchers since the postdoctoral period is a critical phase in their careers.
