New NLM Preprint Pilot Project

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has launched a pilot project to test the viability of making preprints resulting from NIH-funded research available via PubMed Central (PMC).

The pilot started the week of June 8, 2020 and will initially focus on increasing the discoverability of preprints with NIH support relating to the current COVID-19 pandemic. For more information:
