BioTechniques welcomes preprints
Now authors submitting preprints to bioRxiv will have the option to submit their work directly to BioTechniques.
Authors of existing bioRxiv preprints can choose to submit their manuscript for consideration at BioTechniques through the Direct Transfer program. This means that authors submitting preprints to bioRxiv will have the option to transfer their work straight to us, by transmitting their manuscript files and metadata directly from bioRxiv, saving re-entering author information during the submission process.
“We believe that preprints are a vital step towards a more open and transparent science — a step that brings great benefits for both the broad scientific community and individual authors.” commented Joseph Martin, Managing Editor.
To find out more about bioRxiv and the benefits of preprints, please see our recently published article here.
Additionally, if you have any questions regarding your bioRxiv preprint or BioTechniques submission, please get in touch with Managing Editor, Joseph Martin.
At BioTechniques we believe that the key to successful, reproducible science is the dissemination of information regarding new and innovative laboratory techniques to the people that need it most. The scope of BioTechniques comprises all laboratory methods and techniques related to the field of Life Sciences, and our aim is to unite the diverse members of this community with the ultimate goal of improving research and results by enabling collaboration and communication of techniques.
