Preprints is a platform dedicated to making early versions of research outputs available, including original research articles and reviews. Content on Preprints is not yet peer reviewed and can receive feedback from readers. Updated versions of manuscripts can be uploaded by authors at any time.
For authors intending to submit, we highly recommend reading the Policy & Process and Instruction for Authors pages. The majority of research journals allow authors to post on preprint servers such as Preprints prior to publication. For more information on this, please see information on Preprints and Publishing in Peer-Reviewed Journals.
Preprints is a non-for-profit platform launched in May 2016 and supported by MDPI, an open access publisher.
