Preprints multidisciplinary preprint platform


Preprints is a platform dedicated to making early versions of research outputs permanently available and citable. We post original research articles and comprehensive reviews, and papers can be updated by authors at any time. Content on Preprints is not peer-reviewed and can receive feedback from readers. Preprints focuses on original research articles and comprehensive reviews. Editorials, discussion papers, and commentary are usually not suitable. Preprints is fully owned and funded by MDPI, an open access journal publisher. It is run on a non-profit basis. You do not need to submit to an MDPI journal in order to post a preprint here, any work is welcome. If you do submit to an MDPI journal, you will be invited to submit to during the submission process.

Preprints has the following features: Multidisciplinary: We cover all research disciplines. Open access: All preprints are posted with a Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 license, ensuring that authors retain copyright and receive credit for their work, while allowing anyone to read and reuse their work. Citation via Crossref DOI: Each preprint has a unique digital object identifier issued by Crossref.
