We are very excited about this new project and preparations are in full swing. You will find some further data and details about the project below:
Over 80 people have joined our team of “preLighters”. They will be selecting preprints they feel are of specific interest to the biological community and will highlight why they feel this is the case. You don’t have to be a contributor to comment on any of these preLights – feel free to let us know your opinion anytime!
This is how many Twitter followers we have already. Social media plays an important role in people keeping track of the latest preprints in their area, so it will be an integral part of our project as well. We’re on Twitter (@preLights and #preLights) and Facebook (/preLights), so make sure to like and follow us to keep up-to-date.
Two weeks from now is when we’re aiming to launch the site. Our teams are doing lots of user testing at the moment, so we’ll hopefully be ready to raise the curtains and start sharing this new service with you shortly!
