Request your next PREreview on SciELO Preprints via the COAR Notify Protocol


We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new request-a-review feature on! Powered by the COAR Notify Protocol, and built in collaboration with eLife and Sciety, this new feature will help you improve your research ahead of wider distribution or publication.

bioRxiv and SciELO Preprints have joined PREreview as the first collaborators in this work to bring this request-a-review feature to life. That means that the next time you submit a preprint to either repository, you’ll be able to request reviews from the PREreview community with the click of a button.

“The COAR Notify protocol has been designed to allow platforms to communicate and easily link research outputs in repositories with resources from external review services,” says Kathleen Shearer, COAR Executive Director. “We are extremely excited to see it in action with our early adopters, PREreview, SciELO Preprints, and bioRxiv.”

“One goal of bioRxiv is to help authors get feedback on papers and enable a broader spectrum of researchers to provide it,” said bioRxiv Co-Founder Richard Sever, “the partnership with PREreview is a great step towards this.”

“We’ve been offering the option to our authors to request reviews from PREreview for almost two years and it’s been a great success in promoting preprint reviews,” said SciELO Preprints Coordinator Alex Mendonça. “This new phase using the COAR Notify protocol will take requesting preprint reviews into new heights which we are very excited about.”
