Two preprints online

We recently submitted two preprints to BioRxiv — there is of course a lot of debate (see here and here) around posting your papers to preprint servers such as this, prior to peer review.  It will be interesting to go through the full process firsthand, then decide if we’ll ever do it again…

Hebert, P.D.N., Braukmann, T.W.A., Prosser, S.W.J., Ratnasingham, S., deWaard, J.R., Ivanova, N.V., Janzen, D.H., Hallwachs, W., Naik, S., Sones, J.E. and Zakharov E.V. 2017. A Sequel to Sanger: Amplicon sequencing that scales. bioRxiv: 191619. doi:10.1101/191619
