New Features: Update Alerts and Preprint Ratings
Preprints Editorial Office
21 October 2016
We have introduced two new features for Preprints to help readers make the most of their time reading a preprint:
- Sign up for email alerts for any preprint. Click the 'alert' button to receive notifications when a new version of a preprint appears or when it is published in a peer-reviewed journal. If you have signed in this will be active immediately, otherwise you will need to enter your email address and click on the link in the confirmation email. We will only use your email address to contact you about the preprint you are interested in, it will not sign you up for any other emails from Preprints or MDPI and we never give your address to third parties.
- Rate articles: as well as commenting on articles you can now rate them in terms of accuracy and contribution. Ratings and comments from registered users appear immediately.
