Webinar Report: An introduction to Sciety for early-career researchers

Watch back the recording to learn more about Sciety – a platform for discovering, reading and sharing preprints and open peer reviews.

As an early-career researcher, the volume of results available to you to read and explore is vast. You can now 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 being developed by a team in eLife, for the community-organisation and peer-led curation of preprints. The platform has been designed with the guidance of researchers since its launch and focuses on addressing the changing needs of the research community when it comes to accessing research outputs.

During this webinar, speakers demonstrated some of Sciety’s key features including aggregation of open reviews, curation of preprints, and much more.

The panel included:

  • 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
