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 primary goal of the NIH Preprint Pilot will be to explore approaches to increasing the discoverability of early NIH research results. 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:


A preprint is a version of a scholarly or scientific paper that precedes formal peer review. Due to the rapidly evolving literature about COVID-19, preprints may be a valuable resource.
