Discover preprint activities using Sciety – a community-organised and peer-led product that helps you focus on the papers that are worth your time.

Sciety is a product developed by a team in eLife, for the community-organisation and peer-led curation of preprints. Sciety has been incrementally updated based on the guidance of researchers since its launch. This has led to a product with a focus on addressing researcher’s needs in the evolution of scientific publishing, based on the consumption of research outputs.

At this event, we will demonstrate some of Sciety’s key features, including aggregation of open reviews, curation of preprints, and much more.

Date: Wednesday, July 27

Time: 4-5pm BST | 3-4pm UTC

Speakers will include:

  • Prachee Avasthi, Associate Professor of Cell Biology, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth
  • Lesley Anson, Director, Biophysics Colab
  • Godwyns Onwuchekwa, Sciety Community and Outreach Manager
