Aren’t the completion algorithms driven by people’s search terms not Google? In which case WTF people? ;-)

The top 5 bioRxiv preprints by attention in the last 24 hours have all been shared in the past week, per . Impressive response to a public health crisis, bringing together the scientific community through the use of sharing platforms.

no - most papers came out when the SARS epidemic was over

"The conestoga wagon is also able to traverse the Oregon Trail. Tell me again why we need cars? I'm all ears . . ." So when journals fast track papers in crisis, they're able to match the normal pace for preprints. Awesome. Now let's look at what happens the rest of the time.

always worth recalling that while this infuriates some people, others prefer it that way (they print paper out and view figs separately)

sure - no problem - I didn't consider it an insinuation. I just wanted to clarify the reason/rationale for the slightly more lengthy process at medRxiv (b/c others have suggested a post-immediately-screen-after approach)

Very interesting! Should every major clinical trial presented in a National Conference be posted on a preprint server like ? - should this be a requirement? I sure think so. If not ready for probably not ready for Press

The role of screening is not to “approve” content but instead to minimize chance of disseminating work that might be dangerous/unethical etc. So we would not release immediately then screen. But we are trying to reduce screening time as much as possible, esp during outbreaks.

it typically takes a bit longer as there are extra checks/oversight because of clinical inferences, patient data, etc. New papers should be posting today. TBH we think the short delay this necessitates is on balance an acceptable con for the pros

Not true for me (or anyone with big citation outliers). If I square root my citations and divide by 2 I get ~51. My H-index is 33. The H index usefully (in my opinion) discounts the fact that I have a couple of software papers that massively skew my total citation count.

Just off to do exactly that. My other strategies are taking lumbar pillow everywhere, standing desk, and avoiding sitting whenever possible

Wow - and reassuring (sort of) for someone chronically afflicted who has resisted surgery [cc - we had this conversation!]
