Accepted Papers in ASM’s Open Access Journals Are Flagged in bioRxiv

Written by 

Manuscripts accepted through the newly launched mSphereDirect path in ASM’s open access journal mSphere, that also have an associated preprint posted in bioRxiv are noted as ‘accepted for publication in mSphere’ in bioRxiv, several weeks before the final article is published in the journal, making the peer-reviewed accepted manuscript available to the public in less than a week. ASM is now expanding this feature to all its open access journals.  

Starting now, accepted papers in mBio®,mSystems®,mSphere®  and Genome Announcements will also be flagged as ‘accepted for publication’ in bioRxiv, if they have an associated preprint. Authors are requested to provide the bioRxiv DOI at submission.

 “ASM is committed to not only providing an excellent publishing experience for all authors and high quality peer review, but also allowing for faster dissemination of science. This is a step in the right direction,” said Stefano Bertuzzi, CEO, ASM.   

bioRxiv, operated by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, is a free online archive and distribution service for unpublished preprints in the life sciences. "ASM represents a great model for how scientific societies can partner with bioRxiv. This new feature is just one of many ways in which they are working with us to provide services around bioRxiv preprints that really benefit their community," said Richard Sever, co-founder of bioRxiv.
