Challenges Citing Preprints and How to Tackle Them

Watch this excellent presentation by Bruce Rosenblum of Atypon as he discusses some of the challenges involved with citation of preprint materials. Bruce provided this talk and the abstract below as part of NISO's Hot Topic Virtual Conference on Preprints.

The COVID-19-induced explosion of preprints has produced a corresponding explosion of citations to preprints. In the process of working with publishers to handle these citations in their publication workflows, our team discovered a series of editorial and production challenges around best practices for preprint metadata and preprint citations. In this talk, Bruce Rosenblum gives an overview of these challenges and potential solutions, illustrated with real-world examples.
