Lectures and seminars Is PrePublication the future? Challenges and opportunities after a pandemic
What happens when research results that have not undergone peer review are spread rapidly outside the research community and are given major impact in news media? The University Library, KIB, invites researchers, doctoral students and staff to a digital seminar about preprint publication.
Meet Gert Helgesson, Gustav Nilsonne, Birgitta Henriques Normark and Petter Brodin in a panel discussion led by Emma Frans.
The seminar is opened by KI President Ole Petter Ottersen. Registration with KI-ID required.
About the seminar
Publishing manuscripts before peer review on open digital platforms has for some time been a way for researchers to quickly share their research results. During the covid 19 pandemic, this way of publishing has increased considerably in scope, not least because several research funders now demand that research findings of crucial importance to public health should be disseminated effectively to the research community. By this way of publishing, researchers can get quick feedback on their results, while facilitating global collaborations and accelerating the research process.
But what are the consequences when research results that have not undergone peer review are spread quickly outside the research community and are given major impact in news media?
The seminar will address the topic of prepublishing from various aspects, and the idea is that this event will be a starting point for a conversation on how KI's researchers can and should navigate in a changing publishing landscape. Practical aspects, what you as a researcher should keep in mind if you publish a preprint, will also be touched upon.
