Join us for a panel discussion on 'Preprints- Accelerating plant sciences and agriculture'
Thursday 29 April 2021
10am New York | 3pm London | 4pm Berlin | 7:30pm Mumbai
After a slower start compared to other research fields, adoption of preprints in the plant sciences and agriculture is growing. Why are researchers in plant and agricultural sciences posting preprints?
In our joint ASAPbio-CABI webinar, we will discuss the outlook of preprints in plant sciences and agriculture, explore what can be learned from fields with a longer tradition of preprint use and hear from researchers who have successfully used preprints for the communication of their research.
