A research guide is an organized collection of resources related to a certain topic. Use the research guides to find discipline specific databases. List of Disciplinary Research Guides:
A preprint is version of a research manuscript that is disseminated prior to the peer review process. Preprints are frequently posted in an electronic format and often made available to the public are often associated with a push towards Open Access (OA) as well as efforts to expedite the dissemination of scientific content. While preprints have been around for several decades, the Covid-19 global pandemic has led to a dramatic increase in the number of publications archived in preprint servers. List of interdisciplinary preprint servers:
An Open Access option for discovering multidisciplinary preprints, as well as postprints and working papers.
A platform dedicated to making early versions of research outputs permanently available and citable. Content on Preprints is not peer-reviewed and can receive feedback from readers.
Rapid Reviews: COVID-19
An open-access overlay journal that accelerates peer review of COVID-19-related research preprints to advance new and important findings and prevent the dissemination of false or misleading scientific news.
