New Commenting Features

Preprints Editorial Office
29 June 2017
One of the benefits of posting a preprint is to receive feedback from colleagues. We want to make this as easy and pain-free as possible. That's why we have updated our commenting functions in the following ways:

  • Posts appear instantly online with no need to wait for moderation. In appropriate posts will be reviewed later.
  • Make anonymous comments online.
  • Send a private comment to the authors directly from the preprint abstract page. 
A reminder of our existing features that you can benefit from:

  • Rate any article on significance and soundness.
  • Get recognition as a reviewer by linking your Publons account to Preprints.
With preprints you have the opportunity to select the papers you want to review and provide feedback to authors that can improve their article prior to journal submission.

We believe that commenting on and reviewing preprints is hugely beneficial to the progress of research and it is our aim to support and facilitate it as far as possible.
