Preprints in PubMed Central

The National Library on Medicine (NLM) recently launched a pilot project to make preprints resulting from NIH-funded research available via PubMed Central (PMC) and findable in PubMed. The primary goal of the NIH Preprint Pilot is to increase the discoverability of early NIH research results. The pilot began in early June and will run for at least a year. Initially, the pilot will primarily focus on preprints related to NIH supported COVID-19 research. Preprints are clearly labeled in PubMed with a green banner.
