Our evaluation model

Life Science Editors provides an editorial assessment of a preprint. We hope to engage the scientific community in discussion, and provide an opportunity for the authors to refine and respond. Our assessment includes: the name of the reviewer, potential conflicts of interest and, in our view, the background of the study, the main question, the advance and the significance.


The Preprint Review Features (PReF) describes key elements of each group’s evaluation activities.
