Pre-Prints and e-Prints

Why search for preprints?

Publication of manuscripts in a peer-reviewed journal often takes months or even years from the time of initial submission, because manuscripts must undergo extensive reviewer critique.

The need to quickly circulate current results within a scientific community has led researchers to distribute documents as preprints. The immediate distribution of pre-prints allows authors to receive early feedback from their peers, which may be helpful in revising and preparing articles for submission.
