Building a preprint community as a scholarly society: a case study of APSA Preprints



The first version of this poster was presented at the APSA Annual Conference 2021, and covered the benefits of sharing early research via preprints, with usage statistics, user feedback and case studies from APSA Preprints, the American Political Science Association's preprint service. The second version was presented at the Society of Scholarly Publishing meeting in June 2022, and was expanded to include considerations for scholarly societies.

Version notes

The poster was expanded to include more information for scholarly societies, for presentation at a later conference (SSP 2022). The poster was also redesigned.
